If an observer is registered for EndDocumentLoad and the tab is not focused while it ends the loading process the observer is not called

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
//use below code
function PageObserver() {}

PageObserver.prototype.observe = function (oSubject, sMessage, sContextUrl) 
{ alert("page loaded"); }
var pobserve = new PageObserver();

var oObserverService = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/observer-service;1"].getService();
	oObserverService = oObserverService.QueryInterface(Components.interfaces.nsIObserverService);
oObserverService.addObserver(pobserve, "EndDocumentLoad", false);

Actual Results:  
the alert box "page loaded" only appears when the tab is focused at the moment the  documents end loading

Expected Results:  
"page loaded" message should appear always
