This bug is also in Radar as <rdar://4315673>

We're having a regression problem with Safari 1.3. Somehow there is no
HTTP request when clicking from one control to the other.
As a result, our webserver received no event and cannot process
the request. This is NO a problem in Safari 1.2.2 (and IE).
For detail and steps to reproduce the problem, please see the
attached zip file 1348219000_norequestonfieldchange.zip.

We've informed Mark and Vicki on this, not sure if they have a chance to
look into it.

Interesting.  This works if I tab to the text field, but NOT if I click in it.

<GMT06-Feb-2006 17:50:19GMT> Mark Malone:
Safari fires onChange and onFocus events in a different order depending on how
the focus is changed.

Pressing the tab key to change the focus from fieldOne to fieldTwo and you get
the following:

   onFocus in fieldOne
   onBlur on fieldOne
   onChange on fieldOne
   onFocus in fieldTwo

With the focus on fieldOne, now use the mouse to click into fieldTwo and the
event order is different from above:

   onFocus in fieldOne
   onBlur on fieldOne
   onFocus in fieldTwo
   onChange on fieldOne

onChange should always fire before the focus is changed.

I think I see what is happening here.  Clicking causes us to
dispatchMouseEvent, which sets the focus.

I'll send a patch out for this tomorrow.
