User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Build Identifier: Chimera build 2002121604 When I load a bunch of bookmarks at once (8 of them, usually), I hit command-H to hide chimera when the first window comes up. This way, it will load all the pages in the background, allowing me to do other things as it loads. Instead of hiding each new window as it loads, chimera pushes them out front, even in front of my current foreground application. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Get a folder full of bookmarks. 2.Open them all simultaneously. 3.When chimera opens its first window, hit command-h to hide the program. Actual Results: Windows pop to the front as they load. Expected Results: Keep them all hidden, until the application is brought to the front again. no crashing... just a small annoyance ;-)
Make several bookmarks in the Finder, select them, Cmd-O then Cmd-H as soon as Chimera opens.
If the system tells Camino to open each file one at a time Camino probably can't avoid unhiding when the later files are opened. Opening a file opens the program for that file and brings it to the front. Probably not a Camino bug.
Wait. Is the original reporter talking about opening files in the Finder, or opening Camino bookmarks inside Camino? The behaviors could be very different.
How would you open many bookmarks at once in new windows from inside Camino?
Ping. Status update anyone? If OS X doesn't allow opening websites to be hidden, it doesn't seem like something we should fix. Is this the case? For the record, from what I can tell, Safari does the same thing and brings the window back from hiding. If this is an OS X thing, we need to WONTFIX this bug.
This is also apparent when minimizing a window while it's in the process of loading content. Once the page is complete the minimized page will spring to the foreground and take focus. Very annoying.
This is not an OS thing, and we should fix it. It's one of the many focus/activate issues that gecko has.
