filter rules window doesnt give focus back to user when using "create filter
from email address", But does give focus back when you chose edit from the
message filters window.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
To see focus not given back:
1. go to email, and right click on one of the email addresses on either the
from, to, or reply-to field, and choose create filter from email address.
2. When the filter rules window apears, try to click on any other window from
the mail/news application).

To See focus given back:
1. go to tools, and choose message filters.
2. choose edit on an existing rule.
3. when filter rules window appears, try to click on an other window from the
mail/news application

Actual Results:  
Results depend on how you arrived at the message filters window

Expected Results:  
regardless of how you get to the message filters window, both should allow you
to take the focus back and use an other window from the mail/news application

Note that if you open the Filter Rules dialog from the Message Filter dialog, 
you can't switch back to the Message Filter dialog.  You can switch to the 3pane 
in this case because the Message Filter dialog is modeless and so doesn't block 
the 3pane.

Updating summary for precision; reducing severity.
