Description n0dalus 2006-03-03 07:17:42 UTC
Description of problem: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=310825 The current Firefox in FC4 is susceptible to a focus stealing bug. It commonly occurs with Gmail running in another tab, and often results in mistaken operations (with Gmail keyboard shortcuts, like messages being trashed or moved around) In the worst case scenario, a website could steal focus when you are putting in a password in another window or tab. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): firefox-1.0.7-1.2.fc4 How reproducible: Very; see test case on Mozilla's bugzilla. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load test case 2. Follow instructions This is fixed in the latest version of Firefox but unless an upgrade is scheduled soon for FC4 then I would recommend back-porting the patch attached to Mozilla's bugzilla. Mozilla may also be affected; I have not tested it.

Created attachment 125636 [details] Patch against 1.0.7 The patch attached to upstream bugzilla didn't work with 1.0.7, so I applied it manually and made a new diff against FIREFOX_1_0_7_RELEASE (So it can be put in the srpm easily).

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd. Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and either update the target product or close it ? Thanks.

This no longer applies to active Fedora releases. Closing.
