Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 209255
As downloads finish they take the focus from forms (for example textareas).

Description of problem:
This is a weird bug. I had a large number of active downloads in a visible
download window and I was typing inside a textarea as the files were
downloading. I noticed that as each download finished, the focus of the cursor
would be lost from the textarea and you needed to click inside the text area
again to get the cursor back.
The window focus didn't change while this was happening.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It seemed to happen every time a file finished downloading. I didn't realize
what was happening the first few times, but then noticed the file finish
downloading (the Downloads window refreshes) and then noticed the cursor had
list focus again. After this I was about to test and realized what was going on.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download lots of files. It will either need to be from a slow connection or
large files so you've got time to test. I was downloading an album from
allofmp3.com so there were 11 files around 4-5MB each.
2. Type in a textarea in a form in a firefox window.
