I'm using Windows 7, 64 bit.  Firefox loses focus when Windows is set up with a rotating desktop background.  When the image on the desktop changes, Firefox loses focus.

ONLY happens with this browser.  Does NOT happen with Chrome, Safari or MSIE.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up custom folder with images you want to rotate in your desktop
2. Open up Control Panel and pick "change desktop background"
3. Browse to your custom folder and pick it.
4. Set picture position, time interval and shuffle.
5. Save changes
Actual Results:  
Loses focus whenever the background image changes.
Version: unspecified → 3.6 Branch
