Opening New Window in Ubuntu 10.04 Does Not Get Focused

I had a really annoying problem after installing Ubuntu 10.04 which I found a solution to today. The problem was whenever I was opening a new window that new opened window was not focused. Quite annoying! The solution is following:
  1. System → Preferences → CompizConfig Settings Manager
  2. Select General in the right hand window.
  3. Select General Options.
  4. Select the Focus & Raise Behaviour tab.
  5. Change Focus Prevention Level to Off.

Thanks man. This was really annoying, because sometimes you open a window, try to close it with Alt + F4, and close another one by mistake.
