Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

I am using Compiz / Emerald, and if I have Firefox + any other
application (e.g. Terminal, Pidgin - any other app) open on one side of
the cube, and other applications open on other faces of the cube,
returning focus to Firefox using the mouse sometimes fail.

Let's say Firefox and Terminal are open on Face 1, and Terminal has focus.
If I spin the cube to Face 2, which has Pidgin open, send a message, and then spin back to Face 1 and click on Firefox, then Firefox does not gain focus.

Switching to Firefox with alt-tab, however, does work.

This bug only occasionally happens.  I am not able to repeat it
reliably, but it has happened several times today.

I am using:

Description:	Ubuntu 9.04
Release:	9.04

Firefox 3.0.14

compiz:
  Installed: 1:0.8.2-0ubuntu8.1
  Candidate: 1:0.8.2-0ubuntu8.1
emerald:
  Installed: 0.7.2-0ubuntu2
  Candidate: 0.7.2-0ubuntu2

Thanks.
