Brian, do you still see this bug with recent trunk builds?
I'm sorry I didn't paste the browser info. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; es-ES; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20060508 Firefox/18.104.22.168
Sorry, I failed to reply to this earlier. Yes, I still see this same problem in Firefox 22.214.171.124. The setTimeout workaround is no longer necessary to avoid an error, but the same problem occurs with the onBlur event after clicking to another application and returning to Firefox.
This bug isn't very prominent in searches for "onblur focus disable"; I found it by my first result, bug 53579. keywords: onblur, focus, disable, text field, textfield, To enable form elements (including the GUI) again, bring another window (can be the Downloads one) into focus after dismissing the alerts, then come back to Firefox.
