Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I'm looking for a way to jump to selected objects in JOSM. For example, I might run a search for all nodes in the current view having a certain tag. My search string might look like this if I'm looking for nodes that were incorrectly tagged:

type:node and highway=track

In the selection box I might see 15 nodes meeting the search criteria. These are highlighted in the map view area but can be downright difficult to find. Is there a way to jump to, or cause JOSM to focus on, each one in succession?

Yes, this is possible via the todo plugin. Just add all selected elements to the todo list. Then iterate through all of them via the Pass or Mark buttons. Pass will keep them in the list while iterating, Mark will remove them simultaneously.
