Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008061015 Firefox/3.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0

Note: I did this in Linux under Wine with "focus on mouseover" settings configured in Linux.  I've had these settings work fine with firefox 2 under Wine, but Fx 3 will, unlike Fx 2, jump to the top of the stack on mouseover.  I expect it to acquire focus this way; Fx 2 did; but I do not expect it to jump to the top of the window stack unless I explicitly click on it.  This can make access to any non-modal dialog a headache.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Have your computer configured to use "focus on mouseover" (only tested on Linux running Fx under Wine)
1. Start Fx 3, and (if necessary) resize it to ~1/4 of the screen
2. Start anything not firefox related and resize it as above. (This /should/ work with non-modal dialog boxes as well, but no guarantees)  I used the Wine equivalent of Notepad
3. overlap the windows with the non Fx window on top and both visible
4. mouse over the Fx window.
5. mouse over the other window.
Actual Results:  
Fx window jumps to the top on mouse over, but Fx 2 wouldn't have

Other window doesn't jump

Expected Results:  
Neither window jumps

Fx 3 behaves like Fx 2 did in this regard 

May not be possible to get Windows configured to reproduce this bug natively, but does show up under Wine

Makes access to non-modal dialogs a pain

Only occurs when system is configured to focus (but not raise) windows on mouseover.  I don't know if Windows lets you do this, but Linux definitely does.

Default theme, few extensions (AdBlock Plus, Foxy Tunes, Google Toolbar, disabled Tab Mix Plus), almost a vanilla install

Kevin do you still see this?  
Or is it obsolete?
