How do I keep Chrome window from coming to the front automatically and seemingly rondomly? Mac OS X
0
Occasionally and seemingly at random, one of my Chrome windows keeps bringing itself to the front.

Anyone know how to stop this? And why it may be happening? I can't figure out a correlation, because it doesn't happen with every window, just seemingly during each session online, there is one window that will come to the front on it's on. Yesterday it was a window I'd minimized. Today it is a window I had opened this morning and then wasn't currently using. I do need to go back to these windows during a session, but I know when that is, NOT CHROME.

This is very annoying/frustrating and makes it hard to work when I constantly have to command-tilde back to the window I need in front.

Thanks for your help!

Also happening on Windows 10.  This is recent behavior.

I have noticed that many (maybe all) of the Windows that come forward have forms on them. If you see a counter example let us know.

This has also started happening to me over the last 3-4 days, MacOS, latest versions of everything. Maybe plugin-related?

Same here.  Just noticed it recently and took me a while to confirm I wasn't causing it.  As a result, I can't say if it definitely started right after the latest update was installed, but it's close.

I am having the same problem on Mac OS, and I think it might be causing a lag in other programs that I am running.

I'll jump in, it's been happening to me too over the last couple of days and I'm on Windows 7.  Haven't made any changes to any programs or installed any new extensions.  Chrome shows I have the most current version.  Very frustrating.

me too - all current.  about  a week old problem - really a disaster when presenting PPT to 1000 people and you learn the hard way that Chrome rules your laptop.  will have to revert to Firefox or Safari if no solution ASAP.
