well it's not in the settings plugin and as such I find this a bad idea 
- it also changed the default behaviour and even though popups are a bad 
thing the new bahaviour consistently puts all new firefox windows in the 
background, even "modal" ones - like java file dialogs - completely 
blocking the browser.

I'm leaving for the airport in 20 minutes so I hope you don't mind me 
filing a bugreport/feature request for a toggle in the UI or a change in 
the default behaviour - I *really* have to run now.
