.focus() doesn't focus previously opened popup
"Raise or lower windows" default setting was silently switched off after upgrade Firefox 220.127.116.11 -> 2.0 beta 1 (Win). It's an unexpected change in behavior of current web applications. If this was intended behavior (security?) please document it somewhere in release notes; otherwise web apps' authors can only guess what's happening and how to solve the problem. Example of unwanted effect: you'll miss a meeting, because reminder window in web calendaring app doesn't show up.
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; cs; rv:1.8.1b1) Gecko/20060710 Firefox/2.0b1 Steps to reproduce: 1) Open test case (attachment #233998 [details]) 2) Click on button Expected result: Opened window will be under main window Actual result: Opened window is over main window Note: IMHO this bug name is not really correct, shouldn't contain text "Deer park"
Target custom names should never start with the underscore except for reserved names. "_Result" is not valid. See bug 351013
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20061022 Minefield/3.0a1 I see this bug even if the "Raise or lower windows" preference is enabled.

Summary: Deer park window.focus() doesn't focus previously opened popup → window.focus() doesn't focus previously opened popup
Demands to change current behavior should be addressed in bug 351013. I don't see why this bug should not be resolved as a duplicate of bug 351013. There has been some discussion about this issue in bug 299424 comment #7 (and on), bug 311956 and bug 355482. > I see this bug even if the "Raise or lower windows" preference is enabled. What you may be seeing could be bug 311956 since that one looks like Linux related. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 351013 ***
