Fixing those little things

July 9, 2007

A while back I came upon this rant about the focus stealing prevention. Recently I realized just how confusing it is; I had a lot of windows open, and so didn’t even notice the Firefox tab blinking at first and thought my clicks weren’t registering. Ick!
So I decided to sit down and spend a day on backporting the upstream patch for this to Firefox 2. If you are a Firefox user (or more hopefully a distributor) interested in having the links you click on the desktop actually appear on the screen without hunting for a pulsing tab, this patch is for you.
