Hi All,

I don't know if this is a known issue - bugzilla is down and google
doesn't give any interesting hits.

I'm experiencing highly annoying focussing behaviour with sawfish,
gnome2 and most mozilla based products (browser, firefox, thunderbird).
Sometimes, focus remains with the wrong (mozilla-) window/application,
and I can't manage to get the keybord focus on the selected window,
except by moving to a different desktop and back again. Mouse-focus
works fine - I can select menu's, scroll, etc. However, firefox seems to
use the keyboard focus to determine which window to do specific actions
on, so for I can for example click the 'reload' button in one firefox
window, and another window will reload.

All of this happens only with mozilla based applications (it might be a
mozilla bug), and with sawfish. Other applications/window managers don't
seem to suffer from this problem.

For the record, I'm experiencing this bug too, I think.  I filed a bug
against FC2's Mozilla for it after I found the way to create it.  I'm not
sure if it is a Sawfish bug or a Mozilla bug.  Should I file a Sawfish bug
in the Sawfish Bugzilla for this too?

I've read somewhere ( there is a problem with the gtk2 build of mozilla (and related gecko applications) and focus behaviour:
