07-26 build on OS 10.1.5. 1. Go to a site that opens pop-up windows, e.g. aol.com. (You may have to clear your cookies first if you've been to aol.com recently.) 2. While aol.com is loading, go to another application, e.g. TextEdit. 3. aol.com loads in the background and opens a pop-up window. Chimera dock icon bounces once pop-up window opens. Actual behavior: Chimera dock icon bounces once when pop-up window opens. Expected behavior: Chimera dock icon should not bounce when the pop-up window opens. A bouncing icon implies that the application needs my attention. A pop-up window that just opened does not need my attention and should not distract me from whatever I'm doing with the application in focus, which is TextEdit in this case.
not clear if it is the OS deciding to bounce due to the new window or our code. If it is the OS, then I suspect there isn't much we can do about it.

richard, any idea what cocoa is doing here? could it be because we're focusing a window or something?

The OS will automatically trigger the user notification when an alert dialog or sheet appears. I don't know why it would be doing it for popup windows unless they are set up so the OS thinks they are some kind of alert dialog. I'll have to look at it. In the meantime, the User Notification controls are in NSApplication, and you can cancel the user notification every time you create a popup window. I'll take a closer look at this later.
Ugh, maybe not. It would be difficult to cancel the notification without knowing what this ID number is. I guess someone needs to talk to Apple and figure out exactly what kind of window triggers this.
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh i know what's going on for every new browser window, in order to make a synchronous load, we enter a modal loop. that must be what's goofing us here. *sigh* thanks hyatt. i'll try to get him to tell us why he did that. i'm not expecting a reasonable answer ;)
Where is this evil modal code? I've been fighting some modal issues as I track down why chimera is doing wierd things when one window has a sheet down, and I'd like to take a look at it.
it's in BWC, enterModalSession().
