Clicking on the page regains focus, so it's more an annoyance than anything. At any rate, I was finally able to get a reproducible instance: From http://www.gentoo.org/news/en/gwn/20040906-newsletter.xml, middle click (setup as open in new tab) the "Emerge messages" link under heading "The other emerge.log". Focus is lost. Again, I've seen other instances, but nothing I could nail down. Usually it involves closing a tab via hotkey, the next tab displayed doesn't get focus. I've been unable to reproduce that. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Narrowing down which JS causes the problem would be good.
confirmed - Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10 I see this all the time when opening mulitple tabs while searching for something. I never attributed this to JS, I always thought it was because the current window wasent complete when I middle clicked a link to open a new tab in the background. When the new background tab finishes, it steals the focus from the forground tab. I usually hit CTRL-L and then TAB to allow me to page up and down with the keyboard again. The mouse scroll wheel does not seem to be affected though. I'll try to find a better test case for my situation.

Sounds like dup of bug 200950
Another candidate for dupping is bug 124750
This bug is the opposite of both of those, they involve opening a new tab which affects the old tab. What I see happening is the opposite, say I load up 10 tabs worth of pages and start reading, closing tabs as I go (note this means all the pages would be loaded and rendered, reading may take 30 seconds per page). Sometimes, but not always, closing a tab results in the lose of focus to the next tab up, ie PGUP/PGDOWN doesn't work (non frame pages). Not the same as 200950 or 124750. I will try to get a good test case.
This worksforme with linux trunk 2005032002. if I have Mozilla select new tabs as they're opened, the newly opened tab (the other emergy.log) has focus in the top frame). If I have the pref off, focus stays on the link I middle-clicked on.
Yes, seems to work for me now, too.
