[Bug 781931] Re: New windows are moved to front but don't take focus


Here's another case, which I thought was a bug in Google Chrome but I
think is a consequence of this one.

Sometimes malicious websites open a maximized popup with ads or
something (which for some reason Google Chrome fails to block). Then the
popup is on front and maximized, but it doesn't have focus. The result
is that when you click on the X to close the window, you are actually
closing the window behind it which is the original one!!!!

Actually being on front and having focus should be the very same thing
at the deepest level exposed to applications. The concepts of "giving
focus to a window" and "bringing a window to front" should not even
exist as separate things.
