Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Setup a basic form, as follows: <form> <input type="file" onFocus="alert('file focus works')"> <input type="text" onFocus="alert('text focus works')"> </form> 2. click each form element above Actual Results: The alert box shows for the "text" input box, but it doesn't show for the "file" input box. Expected Results: It should have shown the alert, hence responding to the onFocus event, for both input elements.

After submitting the test case I noticed that the form does gain focus when hitting the "browse" button. I also tested with Mozilla 1.2a on Windows and Mac OS X and the input text area also doesn't register focus. Thanks to the Mozilla folks who are looking at this bug. Let me know if I can assist in any other way.
Happens on Linux too. Neil, does your patch for that focus weirdness fix this?
