Description John Ellson 2005-02-22 09:56:28 EST
Description of problem: I have focus-follows-mouse in my windows preferences. When gnome-terminal is untabbed, then this works. When gnome terminal is tabbed then this doesn't work. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.9.2-1 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open 2 gnome-terminals 2.Open second tab in one of the terminals. 3.Move mouse from untabbed terminal and select either tab of the tabbed terminal, but without traversing over the terminal area of the tabbed terminal. Actual results: The tabbed gnome-terminal no longers accepts focus as mouse is moved around the screen. Expected results: focus-follows-mouse Additional info:

Perhaps its not a focus-follows-mouse problem. I can get a tabbed terminal window to loose ability to focus from focus-follows-mouse by selecting the tab with a click-drag-release within the tab area rather than just a click-and-release without motion. You can tell when the problem is occurring because a dotted box appears around the tab. It seems to be fairly sensitive to timing. Basically the mouse has to be in moton as you click. Click followed by a delayed drag doesn't do it. Normal focus behavior is restored by clicking in the terminal window, this also causes the dotted box to disapear. Perhaps there is an additional binding to the tab widget that needs to be disabled? Is the tab grabbing entry focus?
Comment 2 John Ellson 2005-04-01 21:29:48 EST
Even easier. Double-click on the tab causes the dotted box to appear and focus-follow-mouse to fail.

See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117240 Dragging selects the tabbar. The tabbar needs to be selectable because of accessability reasons. Whether it should be focussed when dragging is a gtk question.

I think you're refering to double-click selection, but the tab is also selected by click-drag and the focus isn't relinquished as the mouse moves away and back again. Reported against Gtk: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=153221
