  Consider setting default for "Focus prevention windows"  to false

Status in compiz package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  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
