Re: [Full-disclosure] Firefox focus stealing vulnerability (possibly other browsers)

And it's not really that much of an issue: disallow script-assisted

reading file input field value (really no reason for them to).

Good ideas.

I really hate to duplicate or relay discussion, but bz says in the bug
that this has already been fixed on the trunk. You can't type *at all*
in file input fields there, only use the File Open dialog, as I
understood him.

I hope this fixes it once and for all. (Yes, this is a teaser. ;-) )
