User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; H010818; YComp 188.8.131.52) Build Identifier: Mozilla 1.2.1 I have noticed that if I use the right mouse button to select 'open link in new tab' that the newly opened tab usually, but not always gets focus. Sometimes the frame I start from retains focus, and the tab is loaded in background. Both behaviors are useful: the second is nice if you're browsing a page, and want to quickly open tabs for a number of links, and explore the links later. I don't know what the UI design called for, and can't find a pref to define this behavior. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Right click on a link in a document. 2. Select 'open link in new tab' 3. Observe whether or not the new tab takes focus, or not. Expected Results: Seems that the behavior (new tabs take focus or not) should be a pref?
The preference is under edit : preferences : navigator : tabbed browsing : load links in the background If this is ticked, the tabs should not take the focus. Of course, if the pref isn't being respected, this is still a valid bug (which I guess it is since it's marked new).
My stupid mistake .... I've checked and can't reproduce this. I believe it was just me running different installed versions of Mozilla, each with different setttings for that preference .... marking INVALID.
