User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 Assume there are two windows open on a Mac: a Firefox window (out of focus) and a Finder window (in focus). If you click the 'home' button on Firefox, focus is switched, but the 'home' button isn't activated. One has to click the button a second time. In the reverse case, if you click the 'Documents' button on the out of focus Finder window, the window gets the focus AND it switches to the documents folder. This isn't unique to Finder, most Apple applications are like this. Quicktime, TextEdit, Safari, Calculator, Preview, etc. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Firefox and navigate to somewhere other than your home page. 2. Open any other application. 3. Click the 'home' button on Firefox Actual Results: Firefox becomes the active application, but the home page does not appear. Expected Results: Firefox should become the active application, AND the home page should appear. This bug causes Firefox (and Thunderbird) not to fit well with the OSX feel. One has to double-click them to get stuff done, whereas other applications only get single clicked.
This seems to be fixed in 42.0. The above directions yields the expected results:"Firefox should become the active application, AND the home page should appear." Running Mac OSX 10.11.1 Is this still relevant with the PowerPC platform if Firefox is no longer supported on it?
