View Full Version : IE keeps stealing focus!

11-06-2002, 08:16 PM
this problem just started happening out of no-where! When ever i've got a browser open, and i'm using another window to do something, the website that is loading pops up when it's done loading. annoying considering i often have up to 8 broswers open at once and they're popping up every time something loads, causing me to often accidentally click something i didn't want to or even close a window i didn't want to - everybody reckons i should just use TWEAKUI to fix this, so it did, and even though tweakui is a neat piece of software, and works on everything else i do, the option that prevents applications from stealing focus DOESN'T WORK!!!!!!! help me before i destroy my PC for good!

The designer has possibly included self focus as an onload function or as javascript. If so, notheing you can do.

Usually this feature is associated with porno and illegal wares sites.

try running ad-aware you may have pop up problems from spyware theres heaps of it on the web at the moment popup killer and Active privacy are good as well

I don't know if you can prevent the windows popping up, but was wondering what would happen if you minimised each window while it was loading its page? When you need it again, just restore it with the right-click on the taskbar icon.

Worth a try if it means saving your sanity.
