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?

It's Murphy's law, out to get you. Just checked, doesn't appear to be happening here either, v 3.5.5 rv 1.9.1.5

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.

"This is not a bug. This is a feature."
