When working with the result of a Confirm box (or an alert box) to change the
focus of a form, the focus is always changed to the next control on the form
instead of the intended control.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Tab through the fields on the test form and click the "ok" button on the
confirm box.


Actual Results:  
The focus moves to the next field regardless of the intended destination.  The
proper field can still be operated on, however.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should return focus to the intended control instead of the next field in
the form.
This is still a problem and there are several bugs that demonstrate that focus
from alert and confirm boxes are not correctly restored.

It works if you do an onchange event on field a which sets focus to itself if
the value is invalid.   Change the value of field a, hit tab , and confirm or
close the dialog box.  Notice the focus is not on the fired element but has
automatically bet set to the next form element.

This is a major useability issue and the new stable base 1.4 shouldn't ship with
this flaw.   We have many dynamic forms, and they are unuseable in Mozilla.  Of
course, that's only my 2c.

Ignore last couple of comments; I wanted to update the link to the attachment,
but this is apparently impossible, or beyond my ken. What gives, guys? :-(
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

This appears to still be a problem.

The onchange handler may be the wrong place to call focus (see bug 243816).  If so, this looks like a dupe of bug 53579.

I was not aware that Javascript disallowed calling focus() from an onchange handler. Clarifications anyone?

PS This is now confirmed using Firefox 1.0.7 on Win98SE.
