Opening the manager is desirable, but stealing focus is not. (On subsequent downloads, as long as the manager has remained open, focus is not stolen.) The download manager should *always* open but not steal focus when it does so, both for consistency and to make it less annoying :) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Close download manager if it is open 2. Click on link to downloadable file type Actual Results: Focus has shifted from the browser window--in which the user was working--to the newly-opened download manager. Expected Results: The download manager should open but rthe browser window where the user was working should retain focus.
Confirming this because its a valid enhancement request. Note however that the requested functionality (which was deliberately introduced for 2nd and subsequent downloads, as noted by the reporter) is not universally popular. Bug 231580 asks for the exact inverse of this bug. If the suggestion from bug 231580 for a pref for this behaviour is accepted then this bug can be duped against that one. Until then however I guess we have two competing bugs.
we gotta pref it, no other way to make everyone happy. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 231580 ***
