I've test with this code. In FF18 for Android, I get only the status focus when I OPEN the test site.
When I change the tab nothing happens with the status. I won't change to blur too.
I tried on PC and it works correctly with Firefox and Internet Explorer.
On Android I tried Chrome and FF18. It works good in Chrome.
So maybe this an bug.
Here is a link
