help|about gets lost on ms-windows (suspect this is windows-only) 1. do help, about 2. focus the original FF window 3. do alt-tab results: help|about dialog is not shown as a window choice (it is however shown in the windows taskbar) I'm not finding the bug or checkin that caused this. this happens starting 2008-10-11 for firefox with the change that focuses the "OK" button. I bet this would also affect thunderbird, where OK button is focused as of 10-10 (different patch?), but in thunderbird the dialog is modal so the bug is not evident. I don't particularly care for this change in focus because one can't just do ctrl+A to select the UA. Will file a bug once the regressor bug is identified.
to clarify, the regression range is 1 day FF 10/10 - 10/11 TB 10/09 - 10/10 I found no checkins for aboutDialog in this range for TB nor FF. So it seems the blame is elsewhere. xref Bug 364360
Would probably be fixed by bug 417733.
WFM in Firefox on XP.
try this variation 1. click help, about 2. focus the original FF window 3. click help, about 4. do alt-tab

i haven't evaluated your regression range - perhaps it has gone from working to not working multiple times. wrt the regression range I stated, I suspect Bug 365467 Weird focus behaviour when evaluating expressions in the Error Console http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/0e52c4677cb4 it checked in 02:38:07 2008 -0700, which means it should have gotten into TB 20081010, but not into FF 20081010 (FF build spins at 2am)
