Page has text input field and a button. When button is pressed, it should play the sound (with quicktime plugin) and then set the focus to the field. You can see the cursor on the field but cannot type anything. Broken in firefox version 3.6.4, worked fine in prevoius versions

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Following example code worked fine prior to 3.6.4 (when button is clicked it should play the sound (using quicktime plugin) and set the focus to the text field. You can see the cursor, but cannot type):
<script type="text/javascript">
    function PlaySound() {
        document.getElementById("sounddiv").innerHTML = "<embed src=click.wav hidden=true autostart=true loop=false>";
    function DoAction() {
    <input type="text" id="fieldid" />
    <input type="button" onclick="DoAction();" value="test" />
    <div style="visibility: hidden;" id="sounddiv"></div>
