This behavior can be changed through:
I checked there but don't see a setting for this. I see
Select Windows when the mouse moves over them
Sorry, accidentally clicked send. Any way, I see
select windows when the mouse moves over them
raise selected windows
after an interval <-- what if the
interval was zero. Will that not so what you want.
double-click title bar to perform this action:
To move a window, press and hold this key then grab the window:
None of those has to do with whether a window comes to the foreground
when it has focus.
Here's some more info: Firefox actually works properly. When I alt-tab
to it, or click on it in the window list in the taskbar, it gets focus
and comes to the foreground as I would expect. So far nothing else
(Thunderbird, Wesnoth, Gnome file windows, for example) works right.
For everything else, they get focus (ie I can see the foreground
window lose focus) but stay in the background, either alt-tabbing or
clicking on the window list.
