This bug is related to bug 53948, in which a window that refreshes
grabs the focus from the active window; it gets even weirder if the
refresh happens in a frame.  In that case, not only does the refreshed
frame grab the focus from the frame that has it, but the frame that
originally had the focus can't get it back by being left-clicked upon.
Once this happens, the only way to get the focus back is to make another
window active, and then switch back.

Although this particular manifestation of this problem will go away once
bug 53948 is fixed, this should qualify as it's own bug, since it should
be possible to give focus back to the frame which originally had it by
left-clicking it.

To reproduce: go to and click on the
main frame to give it focus.  Wait until the banner ad at the top refreshes
(this will take 5 minutes).  Then click the main frame and try to scroll
it down with the arrow key or the page down key; it won't work.  (Although
the scrollbar still works fine).

The URL I gave no longer demonstrates this bug, as the website design has
changed, removing the frames.  Someone will have to make a testcase and
attach it.

Needs testcase.  Setting further milestone since use of scrollbar provides 

This bug has been marked "future" because the original netscape engineer
working on this is over-burdened. If you feel this is an error, that you or
another known resource will be working on this bug,or if it blocks your work
in some way -- please attach your concern to the bug for reconsideration.
