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.

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
FWIW for me this bug has been started between the following builds.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1a2pre) Gecko/2008080703 Minefield/3.1a2pre ID:2008080703

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1a2pre) Gecko/20080808031528 Minefield/3.1a2pre ID:20080808031528

But I can't find a checkin which could have been raised this issue:

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

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)
