In my project, I have a server running at localhost, javascript will send a request to localhost server which will open a Dialog window. The problem is I want the new Dialog window to get the focus, but what it happened is both browser (firefox) and dialog get the focus at the same time. I say that because both window's title bar is in clear blue. If I click the Dialog, then firefox lose focus, i.e. the title bar becomes gray. Is there a way to ask other windows on the platform to lose focus?

After experimenting more, looks like the problem is that dialog didn't get focus at all, but I used setAlwaysOnTop(), so it appeared to be focused.

Thanks for any suggestions.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
