It's even worse in Windows, Tab doesn't work at all. Should I open a separate bug report for that?
To be precise, it's just that initially the focus is nowhere. Tabbing works after setting focus somewhere.
I can confirm the behavior mentioned in the description with 5.3 master build / Windows 7 after setting initial focus in the list.

Yes a new bug exclusive to windows should be filed, as Open File is supposed to be set focus, like it is on linux. CC steve so he can check if its a problem on mac as well.

On LibreOfficeDev 6.1 from 2017-11-26 when I press spacebar on Recent files or templates the focus switch from the left side to the right side. So for example when I press space bar on recent files I move on the recent files list.
To open the related menu to the recent files I have to press alt+down arrow, I assume that it is a GTK behavior.
I don't understand precisely if what I've experienced is the same as you.

Yes the is the correct behaviour for spacebar.

I guess this is the correct behaviour, because up and down also acts like tab and shift+tab to go between the buttons.
