10.3: Switch Terminal window focus with mouse movement
Authored by: hankk on Sep 21, '09 10:16:18AM

I've used this tip for many years, but it is effectively broken with 10.6 Snow Leopard in many cases. I find that if I am using Terminal, and use Command-Tab to switch to an application *in a different space*, then the application switches, but the space does not. This effectively leaves things unchanged, and doesn't switch you where you want to go.

If you turn off the focus-follows-mouse defaults, as per the original posting, then the behavior works as it should.

Oddly, using Launchbar to switch applications *does* work. But I like using Command-Tab at times, so I had to turn off focus-follows-mouse.

It seems like it's fixed in 10.6.6 so you should start using it again.
