I'm not sure if this is a a dup of bug 9305, or maybe it is supposed to be this
way but...

When there are multiple windows open, each address bar has a blinking caret.
This can make it confusing as to which window has the focus.

Shouldn't be too confusing, it is the only one with a blue titlebar. reassigning
to saari in case it is related to

On Linux, even in a single window, you can see carets blinking in every text
field/area that has ever had focus.
OS: Windows 98 → All
Hardware: PC → All
I'm going to limit this bug to carets between windows (shaver reopened another 
one for the problem of multiple carets within a window).

Have fixes waiting for Mac and Win, working on Linux still.

Need focus memory to fix this, since linux has a different event order than other 
platforms.

2/14, same estimate as focus memory
