Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Passing focus to the Select object also seems to fire an extraneous blur event before the focus event. Not sure if this is a bug.
focus events just don't bubble from text inputs. Arguably, they should not bubble at all (per the spec, they shouldn't).

Sure this is a bug. Doing complex forms with all events bugs is impossible. It seems that "event code" has not been reviewed since a long time ago. Bug confirmed in FF 2.0.4
Per DOM Events recommendation focus and blur events don't bubble, so capturing event listeners should be used. This bug is INVALID. (It was a bug that focus and blur events did bubble in some cases.)
