Description Scott Hankin 2003-01-16 22:23:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021202 Description of problem: With the advent of metacity as the default window manager, the only option available for window focus preferences is click or pointer focus. If auto raise is selected, the delay is near instantaneous. There is no way to adjust the delay, and I suspect the default delay (500 milliseconds) is not being honored. This makes for a frustrating user experience - I bring up Mozilla's preference panel, and it disappears immediately behind the main window. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open mozilla 2. Open the preferences panel 3. Watch is disappear very quickly behind the mozilla window Additional info:

It is configurable, Preferences->Window Focus If it doesn't work that's another issue; does it work if you make it long enough to perceive? I don't have other reports of it not working.
Comment 2 Scott Hankin 2003-01-16 22:46:56 UTC
No, Preferences->Window Focus (on RH8.0) only shows three boxes: Click to give focus, Point to give focus, and Raise window on focus (a sub-selection of the second button). There is no way to set the delay.The preference box (just an example) is briefly visible, but disappears as soon as it finishes drawing.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-16 22:58:43 UTC
Oh, I probably remember it wrongly. In current Rawhide betas the prefs dialog has the delay. In 8.0 then, you have to open gconf-editor, and go to /apps/metacity/general/autoraise_delay (or something along those lines)
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2003-02-03 23:13:41 UTC
Anyway, it is configurable in the prefs dialog in latest.
