The FF window goes to foreground, hiding the original application requesting the URL. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Firefox 2. Open another program with URL link support 3. In the second program, "click" over a link 4. Firefox opens the URL Actual Results: Firefox window goes foreground, stealing focus and visibility from the original URL requester. Expected Results: Firefox should open the URL in background, leaving the original application alone. So the user can keep clicking on additional links, for example. Previous versions of firefox worked fine. So, this is a regression.

Kevin, could you try with Thunderbird?. That is, click on a link in a message in Thunderbird. Thanks.
I don't have Thunderbird installed.
Not blocking until it's confirmed.
Some data: I'm a KDE user. My version is a bit old: KDE 3.4.2. KDE standard windows manager. This is a Suse 10.0, fully patched. I'm seeing this issue clicking links in Thunderbird 2.*. My main point is: same configuration, Firefox 2 works fine. Any other data you need?.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b2pre) Gecko/2007121108 Minefield/3.0b2pre Still reproducible.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b3pre) Gecko/2007121704 Minefield/3.0b3pre Running on Gentoo under Gnome 2.20. Can confirm.
Also "Actual Results" i getting: Firefox window goes foreground, stealing focus and visibility from the original URL requester and keep flashing in taskbar.
Summary: Firefox 3 remote control stealths foreground → Firefox 3 remote control steals foreground
Summary: Firefox 3 remote control steals foreground → Firefox 3 remote control steals foreground from other apps
I can also confirm this very annoying bug. Actually just for that i have set loadTabsInBackground or what it's called. If that config variable is true, it doesn't steal focus, but otherwise it does. Very annoying when trying to open 10 links from an external feed reader with firefox -remote "openurl($URL,new-tab)" and Firefox steals focus each time :( I *think* when investigating the problem, i saw that content.focus() also raises the window, not just window.focus() as expected. Firefox3 nightly on Linux with wmii window manager here.
