Scrolling status bar text (made using javascript) still keeps scrolling when I
go to another tab.  If two websites with scrolling statusbar text are open in
different tabs, the text jumps back and forth between them both at once.

http://www.elsevier.nl/locate/advwatres

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to URL listed (http://tian.hwr.arizona.edu/yeh/index.html)
2.open another tab, to any other site, especially another site with scrolling
text (ie. http://www.elsevier.nl/locate/advwatres)
3.text is still scrolling in statusbar, while looking at second site.

Actual Results:  
completely reproducable every time (and in Firebird 0.6 it did too)

Expected Results:  
the scrolling text should only appear in the statusbar when that site is the
active tab.
