From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; IRIX IP32; en-US; rv:1.0.0+) Gecko/20020427 BuildID: 2002042723 When you are finished composing a message, and hit 'send', a window is opened indicating progress in sending the message. When this window is opened, it raises the compose window to the front of the window stack. This is wrong. (IMO) Nothing should alter the position of windows in the window stack apart from the user. It would be understandable (though, IMO, still not acceptable) if it were an error which demanded my attention, but this is purely a status message. It is a problem for me because I hit send and immediately push it to the back of the window stack so I can work on something else. When I do this, it rudely raises itself again, purely to tell me it's doing what I asked of it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.compose email in a window which isn't at the top of the window stack 2.hit 'send' 3. Actual Results: window is raised to the top of the window stack. Expected Results: should just send.
Confirmed i am seeing the same action on all Unix platforms (Solaris, Linux). Agree that this is the wrong thing to do and also the copious amount of window raises in mozilla code makes it not only ineffecient but also very slow due to the expensive nature of X window stacking and raising.! This need to be fixed since the browser is becoming stable we really need to concentrate on performance which is quire dire comparatively to netscape.
Could someone please have a look at this? It is incredibly irritating. Thanks. Max.

Can someone please change this to ALL platforms if it is occuring on all other *nix's. It will broaden the number of people who see this considerably, and it sounds like it is NOT just an IRIX bug.
dup of 128505 ?
Sounds likely, though that suggests it is a dup of 88810, which has a more sensible Summary.
I think bug 88810 is a more generic problem; this is a specific issue. I also don't think "all" is appropriate because, under Windows, it's not (normally) possible to have an active window where you can "hit send" without that window being on top already. (I don't know whether that's true for the Mac or not.) Does the problem still exist? Does it apply to all windowing environments for *nix, or just X-windows?
Can't see how to reproduce this on Windows... the progress dialog seems to come up immediately. However, all Mozilla dialogs do try to focus/bring themselves to the top... this is more of a Windows thing though... and in W2K and later the window doesn't actually go to the top, just the taskbar icon flashes. So still not relevant to windows.
(In reply to comment #8) > Can't see how to reproduce this on Windows... the progress dialog seems to come > up immediately. IINM, *MS* Windows will not let you type into a window which is not at the top of the stack, so this situation cannot arrise. This is similar on OS X, I think, though important dialog messages in OS X don't grab focus, even though they are popped to the top of the stack (at least, that's my observation). > > However, all Mozilla dialogs do try to focus/bring themselves to the top... this > is more of a Windows thing though... and in W2K and later the window doesn't > actually go to the top, just the taskbar icon flashes.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01". This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code. While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug (given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more reproduction information if you have it. If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved. Thank you for your help in this matter.

(unfortunately) no longer have access to IRIX, or other window system that allows typing into a window that isn't at the front. anyone else confirm?
Max feel free to close if you can't recreate this.
