Or to sum up: a tab asking about cookie preferences steals focus away from the current tab. I have Tabs > "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately" disabled, although of course this has nothing to do with a new tab anyway. I have no addon that changes the way tabs work. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open tab X, navigate to a page, preferably one you know has some links that take a while to load. It must also be a link that will cause a 'new' cookie to be offered that you've not yet set preferences for. 2. Open tab Y to another page 3. Now switch back to tab X, and hit one of those links. 4. Quickly switch to tab Y 5. Watch as you end up back on tab X for the cookie dialogue, and don't end up back on tab Y after answering it either. Actual Results: Ended up away from the tab I was trying to use. Expected Results: Tab 'focus' should stay on the tab I'm on unless *I* select another tab explicitly.
