[Bug 782758] [NEW] Liferea opens other windows in the foreground and loses focus - regression from Gnome 2/3


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: compiz

How to reproduce the bug:
1. Make sure you are using Unity
2. Install liferea
3. Open a link from liferea

What happens:
A browser windows is opened, goes into foreground and steals focus from Liferea (if using Opera as a browser to open links, if Opera is minimized, this bug does not occur - with Firefox it seems to occur always).

What should happen:
the link should open in the background. It did happen with metacity so I think this is a regression. It also works this way with Gnome Shell. The use case is skimming all new items, opening them and then reading them later.

Note: this happens only if Focus Prevention Level in Focus & Raise
Behaviour in General Options in ccsm is set to low or off(which is the
default though) - if it is set to normal or higher, this does not occur,
so maybe it is a compiz thing? Anyway, this behaviour came with Unity.
