User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20030306 Camino/0.7 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20030306 Camino/0.7 When I switch from another application to an empty window in Camino, the cursor does not appear in the Location field. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Position the window focus in the contents portion of an empty window by clicking there. 2. Click in another window in Camino or in another application 3. Click back in Camino. Actual Results: Focus stays in the content field of the window. Expected Results: Focus should move automatically to the "Location" field of the window.
Why? You explicitly focused the content area. Why should Camino second-guess you?
If you're switching from another application to an empty Camino window, it's because you want to type in a URL and go somewhere, regardless of what you were doing in Camino before.
Hmmm... It looks like the cursor remains wherever it was when you left it (Camino 2003042505). Considering the following I can't see why this isn't the expected behavior. (a) you have to work to get the focus out of the location bar in the first place. (b) an "empty" window (new window that doesn't load the homepage by default) behaves the same way that a window with a page loaded in it does. ... am i missing something? has this behavior changed since 0.7?
Is there a good reason why one should be allowed to focus empty content in the first place?
Summary: Improvement for focus-changing → Always focus the Location Bar of blank windows when brought to foreground

I agree with Manfred. It serves no purpose whatsoever.
I would like to add that, focus always at the location bar when creating a new tab. The latest nightly release, the location bar is not the focus even though you created a new tab (cmd-t) with the current tab location bar in focus (cursor positioned in location bar).
Oh forget about my previous comment, looks like this is quite a different case from what I described. Sorry.
This bug is WONTFIX per discussion in IRC. We keep focus where it was when you left the app. If the focus was in the content area, we keep it there. If it was in the location bar, we keep it there. This is the correct behavior. Focusing blank content was the user's choice and we should honor it when switching back to the blank window.
