Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826

The input HTML form element doesn't respond to an onFocus event if the type is
set to "file".

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?

Neil sez yes.

Hopefully bug 176100 will get fixed shortly.
