This tracking bug will focus on focus stealing. 

Bug 88810 is the tracking bug for focus stealing related to windows. This bug
will track that bug, and track all other focus issues, such as those related to
dialog boxes and others.

This is in part prompted by a bugzilla search for "focus steal" today, which
found 13 open bugs.

It would appear from my own experiences and a post on the Mozilla forums that
this focus problem is back!  It isn't happening much and I cannot remember what
triggers it.  Anyone noticing this?

This bug should not go 'invalid'.
I still have problems with the scrollbar (Bug 35191).

Don't request blocking on meta bugs. If you want to request blocking, do it on the individual bugs.
Flags: blocking1.9?
On individual? They're so duplicated, I think...

Yay! One closed :D .
