Web pages in background tabs still focus
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.9 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.9 If you are browsing a web page and then open one in a new tab such as www.hotmail.com that focuses on a field when it comes up, the focus is stolen from the current web page. So, I can open my new page and type in my old page until the new page finishes loading. Once it finishes loading, whatever I type is suddenly typed into the field that is focused on in my other tab. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open web page with fields. 2. Open another web page in new tab with a field that is focused on. 3. Start typing in the first web page. 4. Wait for the new page to finish loading. Actual Results: Focus is given to the page in the other tab, and your text is placed there. Expected Results: Keyboard focus should have remained on the web page in the active tab.
