Details

spun off from bug 433340.

Some Windows IMEs decide the window level of the candidate list window from current focused window level. However, the widget of <panel> element never has the actual focus. Therefore, some IMEs don't use topmost window level for the candidate list window.

I have no idea to fix this bug...

# The default IMEs of Win Vista always create the topmost window, so, they don't have this problem.
I think that we should warn that XUL app developers don't use topmost panel element for the container of text input fields in MDC.
