Blur problem with form elements in Firefox 3

I found this bug while working on a Superfish menu. The problem is that when a dropdown opens over a form element, the mouseout(triggered by blur) does not work. Works in IE but not in FF. An example of this behavior in action can be found on Click on the store locator, hover over the Travel, Women's or Kid's menus, then try mousing out over the form input at the bottom of the drop down menu. You'll notice that the menu does not disappear. Superfish uses the blur function to trigger the mouseout behavior.

No test case. This type of problem is best triaged on the forum.

I advise that this ticket be reopened or a new ticket created on this issue. This is a valid issue.

Simply put, the jquery blur function does not work in Firefox but does work in IE 8, in my tests.

I had to use normal javascript to make this work, the firefox native blur method does work.

document.getElementById('id').blur(); -- works in Firefox

$('#' +'id').blur(); -- does not work in Firefox
