When I start some app I want to control were focus is(for example if I start firefox I want focus to be for example on address bar).

P.S. Im not looking for Firefox plugin, I just wonder if there is app for that.

I think that is application defined behavior and you will not be able to change it. – binW Jan 6 '11 at 14:28
I could write script in AutoHotKey to do that, but I hoped that in Linux there is some magic tool for that(I feel that most app here do the focus wrong) – UAdapter Jan 6 '11 at 14:33

To do that I would need to write script in tools like AutoHotKey(its a windows tools, but there are linux # counterpart)
