I'm not talking pop-ups, OK? I hate websites, such as Gmail, that you can go to and click a link. While you're waiting for the page to load, you go to another open window and are minding your own business and the other window comes back up. This can be really annoying if you're doing something important in the second window. Gmail is really bad with this. Is there a setting I can change to stop this on any web page?

Google TweakUI, somewhere in there is an option to prevent applications stealing focus. Set it up to as to not allow focus stealing (switching windows).

Thank you so much. That pretty much takes care of it, although not perfectly. Thanks for your help.
