>>>   My Info:   Win7_64, Nightly 49, 32bit, ID 20160526082509
0. Open new Firefox window
1. Copy "view-source:" to clipboard
2. Open new tab in the window from Step 1, press Ctrl+V to paste url to clipboard
3. Press Enter, then immediately press Alt+Tab (and release Alt) to switch to another Firefox window

AR:  When tab from Step 2 loads, the window from Step 1 becomes focused
ER:  The browser shouldn't steal focus from another window, because:
     it knows that I switched between windows AFTER I navigated to that url

I wasn't able to reproduce on the latest Firefox release (50.1.0) on Mac.
Actually, I WAS able to reproduce to reproduce it by clicking on a different window.
