Description

17 years ago
I don't know about you, but I hate (and I mean really hate) it when I'm 
web-surfing on my merry little way in a myriad of windows and they keep trying 
to steal focus from one another.

Now, I'm no Java programmer, but I'm told that much of this behavior is due to 
JS focus().  I want JS focus() to die; at least on my web browser.  If other 
people want to keep it, fine.  But I dare say there would be a choir of 
like-minded people singing Mozilla's praises if it were to incorporate this 
proposed feature.

Thank you for your time.

Reassigning to Browser-General for consideration; although this may be
a known dupe. Compare bug 29346	"Prevent repeating pop-up windows"

Take a look at http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/components/configPolicy.html

(use Window.focus in place of Window.open in the example)

Good, that means it would be a lot easier to implement in the preferances dialog
box that most users would know how to get at.
