From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204 BuildID: 2002020406 If you're using the preferences window and the browser has completed loading a page form a slow responding URL the preferences window looses focus in favor of the newly loaded window. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open a preferences window 2.Leave the preferences window open and type in the URL box a known slow reponding URL. While Mozilla attepts to load the URL switch back to preferences window and start browsing the preferences tree. 3.Wait until Mozilla finishes loading the page in the background. Actual Results: When Mozilla finished loading the page it forces focus to the browsing window. Expected Results: Mozilla should have left focus on the current preferences window where I was working. It happens only at "finished loading page" event. If during the slow load there is a warning like permission to set a cookie you lose focus from the preferences window, answer the question and the focus automagically returns to the preferences window you've been working on.
