We know Windows doesn't move focus when you click on the scrollbar of the
top-level window (e.g. if something inside the window has focus, it doesn't
clear focus when you click on the scrollbar), right? We just don't know of
a way of testing nested, native scrollbars on Windows. So, I still think
it's accurate to call this the Windows native scrollbar behavior.

FWIW, see the related

Gecko's behavior makes me a little less worried than the "never move focus"
