I'm using Adobe Flex 3.0 to build a web application. Adobe's BrowserManager class returns an implementation of class that allows a Flex application to set the "fragment" part of the URL. This is used for "deep-linking" in Flex. My application calls BrowserManager.setFragment() as the user types. When I do this in Firefox, the browser grabs the focus of my application, which makes the feature essentially useless for my app. I can set the focus back programatically, but by this point, it's too late. FWIW, this works fine in IE8, Chrome and Safari. Only in Firefox is this behavior exhibited.

No, this is still broken with the latest version (22). Works fine in Chrome--just tested.
