|Did firefox fix the onfocus alert "bug"?|
| 8:58 pm on Nov 17, 2009 (gmt 0)|
I guess it wasn't really a bug, it was a "gotcha".
Last time I checked, this was a problematic piece of ouch:
<input type="text" value="" onfocus="alert('bomb')" />
when you focus on it, the alert pops up.
when you close the alert, focus goes back to the input.
this repeats. forever.
Now I'm illustrating this "gotcha" for a colleague, and it's not happening.
It was always a problem in Firefox, not in IE or Opera or Chrome etc.
Is this something Mozilla "fixed" in a recent update?

Bug? What bug? I never saw this bug. Anyone else?
It's Murphy's law, out to get you. Just checked, doesn't appear to be happening here either, v 3.5.5 rv 184.108.40.206
Hwever leaving it open in a tab, I moved to this tab to post, then back to the test tab, and it alerted, but most likely because it was just re-focusing the first field in the form.
