focus() does not move the focus from an iframe to the main window

I have an iframe in the main window (CKEditor).

A mouse over event on something on the main window is suppose to set an keyup bind on the $(document). Unfortunately the keyup event is sent to the iframe. I tried to use .focus() on an input element in the main window but it does not help.

The only work around I found so far is to click on something in the main window. This is enough to have my keyup function receiving the keys.

This happens in FF 8.0.1

I think .focus() should be able to move the focus on the main window.
