User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:48.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/48.0
Build ID: 20160405030214

Steps to reproduce:

I've confirmed the concrete problem only with ATOK for Mac (a commercial IM in Japan) and Firefox combination.

Configure ATOK for Mac as following:
0. Install ATOK 2015 for Mac.
1. Open "ATOK 環境設定" from "環境設定" input menu item.
2. Select "推測変換" item in "設定項目" configuration tree.
3. Turn the "確定直後に推測候補の自動表示を行う" setting ON.
4. Press "OK" to close configuration dialog.

With this configuration, after you commited a word with ATOK, automatically opened continueing word suggestion window.

Clicking browser window should close the suggestion window.

Actual results:

With Firefox, it (the window) leaves.

Expected results:

Like other browsers than Firefox, clicking browser window should close the suggestion window.

Hmm, I don't have ATOK 2015 for Mac. Makoto-san, do you?

Older version of ATOK for Mac should reproduce this.
Oh, okay, thanks. I'll try to test it when I have much time.
I have ATOK subscription.  I test this this week.
Sorry, You need ATOK 2012 for Mac or later versions to reproduce this.
Tested on 10.10 with ATOK 2015.
Ever confirmed: true
Although I doesn't create patch yet, we should call [NSTextInputContext deactive] when blur?

Basically, I hope that it's not so because the document said "You should not call this method directly; it is invoked by the system. It is provided as an override point for subclasses". So, I'm afraid to call it by ourselves...
I expect Gecko send (probably all) mouse events to [NSTextInputContext handleEvent:] before/after Gecko handles it.
Then ATOK can dismiss automatic suggestion window by handling it.

Webkit2 handles same method for mouse.  Thanks, Irie-san.

Some IME handles mouse event by handleEvent method of NSTextInputcontext.  So we should call it on mouse event for IME
