Description n0dalus 2006-03-03 02:17:42 EST
Description of problem:


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):

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.

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 ?

This no longer applies to active Fedora releases. Closing.
