Loading Tab with HTML Form steals focus from another tab
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040421 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040421 Going to a web page with an HTML form steals focus from a "newer" tab when it fully loads. This bug is noticed by power tab users. Also, it works best on pages that have login forms like http://mail.yahoo.com Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: You must perform this fast. 1. Go to a web site with a login form, http://mail.yahoo.com works best for me. 2. Before the page fully loads, create a new tab and start writing something in the address bar. 3. After the Yahoo Mail page fully loads the login form will steal text input focus from the browser, as you can see from changing back to that tab. Actual Results: Yahoo Mail web page's (background tab) login form (username) steals focus from active tab. Expected Results: The focus should still be kept on the front (active) tab. Not be stolen from a tab from the background.
