Discussion via IRC: <mcomella> ibarlow: If a popup tries to open, should it open over any open tab? <mcomella> As in, even if the tab you're currently on is not the one trying to spawn the popup? <mcomella> That's what we currently do but I wonder if it's the correct behavior <ibarlow> hm that's a good question. I can see that being correct if your current tab is the one that spawns the popup. But if it's a background tab… I'm not sure we should take the user away from their current context

^ needinfo on a definitive answer as to whether or not this is the expected behavior.
An idea: Perhaps we want to label popups in the tabs tray so if the tab gets opened as a background tab, it is at least obvious why this new tab is here.
Yeah, I still feel that what we discussed should be the behaviour. Popups from background tabs should not steal focus.
