Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Focus is not being restored to its previous window after fast-switching away to
another app and coming back.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Get focus on a page by clicking in it and verify focus by using cursor keys
(etc) to navigate. 
2.Alt-Tab away to another application. 
3.Alt-Tab back. 

Actual Results:  
Keyboard will no longer navigate as it did before, and won't until the page is
clicked.

Expected Results:  
The keyboard should continue to operate in the window that had focus before the
user left it. You have to mouse-click to get focus back, which is against my
religion (seventh-day keyboard adventists).

What version are you using?  Posting MSIE build IDs is not going to help us.
