User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.9.3 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.9.3 Firefox (and maybe the Mozilla browser itself, I don't have it installed) allows one page to steal the keyboard focus from another page. This is particularly annoying when entering some text, for example a password, in a site. In the middle of your typing, the keyboard focus goes to another window - maybe even a background tab - and the password you typed goes to that site's textbox! This is, when I think about it, a major security issue. It can be used to steal passwords. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. When in a page with a textbox, open another page in a tab. 2. Manually set the focus on the first page textbox, start typing. 3. When the second page has loaded, if it has some kind of onload="focus" event, it will steal your text input. Expected Results: Somehow notify me that the tab wants to steal focus, but don't pass it. Windows XP has a "tweak-ui" applet that can be used to make windows flash in the taskbar when they try to steal focus. This idea can be used here.
