I visited a website that uses the following code in the body tag:
When I want to print this page, view the print preview or open the source view
this window is closed. If opening the source window, the source is displayed.
But if I want to print the print dialog is opened and I can changed the options,
but printing is not performed. The same occurres for the print preview.
The website is openend in a new window that contains only the menubar and the
statusbar, no toolbar.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a website that uses the above mentioned JavaScript code for onBlur.
2. Try to print this page.

Actual Results:  
The window that I want to print is closed and no printing action is performed.

Expected Results:  
Printing the page is the behaviour I expected.
The problem is that once the window closes there is nothing to print.... and
when you open the print dialog, the page gets blurred.

I'm not really sure what we can do here... perhaps the print dialog should be
modal?  The problem is that holding on to the document is not enough, since
window closure tears down the DOM.
