When a Captcha Popup appears, it uses the "On Top" attribute, and it shows the Title Bar as if it is the Active Window. However, it is not the Active Window.

To test this, start Firefox and open a multi-line edit box. Start JDownloader running with several links each in several different hosts that require a textual Captcha response (Reconnection should be turned off, so it does not contaminate the log). Minimize JDownloader to clear the screen a bit. When the next Captcha challenge dialog pops-up, start typing (no mouse use). Where do the characters appear? Notice that the dialog appears to be the active window and is definitely on top of FireFox.
