Almost four year ago I wrote a post http://goo.gl/VKTc in my blog describing incorrect behavior of window.onblur event in IE and a workaround. At that time I tried hardly to submit a bug report to Microsoft, but couldn't find a way to do that. My blog isn't really that popular, but I received numerous thanks from web developers for posting a workaround.
Recently, thanks to Dimitri Glazkov's buzz about Enhanced Scripting in IE9 http://goo.gl/CO1v I asked the same questions on MSDN IE blog http://goo.gl/Un5g and got a suggestion to submit bug report to Microsoft Connect.
Then I found that someone already submitted "Incorrect behavior of window.onblur event" bug to IE blog http://goo.gl/6HlF. Unfortunately it was marked as "Won't fix" by IE 9 team. So, are we looking for another four years before this bug will be fixed? I doubt Internet Explorer would survive that long.
Want to buzz about it?
An update of 10/19/2010: I got a nice message from Microsoft Connect Team saying the following:
“Greetings from Microsoft Connect!
Thank you for your feedback.
This issue was resolved in Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview Build 3 released on 6/23/2010. Please verify the change and file a new feedback (or reactivate the existing one) if the problem persists.
The Internet Explorer Team
Thank you for using Microsoft Connect!”
It was a first time in my life MS directly communicated to me, that’s nice.
