Yet another focus-related feature
« on: March 31, 2008, 10:11:59 PM »
i noticed the ""Hide on lost focus" thread but my request is slightly different. let's say i use Farr to do a web search query; Farr submits the request to the browser then hides. it's all ok but somehow the browser doesn't have the focus (even though it is the top-most window), i have to click on the browser to gain focus of it. so i'm wondering if can Farr do this by automagically and/or is it already available among the options?

I will check this, but what FARR *should* be doing is hiding and then launching the url in browser, which should allow the browser to get focus.  But it's possible that I somehow changed this recently by accident.

Here the browser gets the focus, even when it's not a new window.

just a small update: i've managed to get my browser (firefox) come into focus by removing the entry in the "Custom File and Browser Tools". perhaps a check-box next to each entry would be nice, to toggle the usage of custom browsers/filemanagers.
