[Bug 1403140] [NEW] Consider setting default for "Focus prevention windows" to false


Public bug reported:

Is the current default of "low" actually doing anything positive?
Two examples of where low interferes & "Off" produces expected behavior

Download something in Firefox
Go > expose FF dropdown for downloads
R. click on the dl > Open containing folder
Folder opens but with out focus

With a nautilus window open open a terminal
run nautilus --new-window
new nautilus window opens but not on top or in focus

With the option set to Off the 2 above examples work as expected
