#45021: Media: Gallery modal has wrong focus and image detail

 When you first click on Add Media from the post editor, the existing
 images are shown, and nothing has specific "focus" (blue outline).

 Clicking on Create Gallery first, the Search box is focused.
 Clicking on images first, and then Create Gallery, the last image selected
 is focused.

 Once images are selected, clicking on the Create New Gallery button, the
 Cancel Gallery link is focused.

 On the Edit Gallery page, before clicking on an image, the sidebar shows
 Gallery Settings for link, columns, size. Once an image is selected, there
 is no way to unselect it, and although the Gallery settings remain the
 same, it is unclear whether this applies to the image selected or the
 entire gallery. Regardless, the image details are shown in the sidebar.
 However, if you Cancel Gallery and choose different images, when you get
 back to the Edit Gallery page, it will still be showing the image details
 for the old image, not any of the newly chosen ones (but none of the
 images are focused when you get there). So the Cancel didn't actually

 If you close the modal without inserting the gallery into the post, and
 then click on Add Media again, it will show the values from the last
 attempt. This is unexpected, and unwanted if you had selected a lot of
 images and wanted to start over. There ''is'' a Clear link, but it is
 small and at the bottom. The last selected image is focused, but not after
 you click Create Gallery (the Cancel Gallery link is), so the image detail
 is the wrong one. If you go ahead and insert the gallery, and click Add
 Media again, then nothing is remembered from the previous gallery.

 While in Edit Gallery, if you had selected two images and click on Add to
 Gallery, you can select more and click Add, they will all be shown, with
 one image focused and showing the correct image detail. Clicking Cancel
 Gallery at this point returns to the media list, but with the original two
 selected and perhaps a different image focused than the previous list. The
 added ones are forgotten.
