i remember when this thread
was posted the same thing was happening to me the whole time on alot of diff occasions that mIRC 6.2 was always stealing focus from my other windows. It was because of that i went back to 6.16. I could never pinpoint exactly what was causing it. I just messed around now with it and came up with ONE way to reproduce it. Although i know it can be reproduced in many other ways
1: Whilst connected to IRC type /timer 1 5 /hop #
3: go to another open window like a browser
4:when the timer kicks in it will steal the focus.
On 6.16 this does not happen.
It also happened to me whilst i was gaming etc
