Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion", SeaMonkey '2.34pre' (self build from c-r rev ba8b3f855a96 / m-r rev 42b937b0039b; the only special option is ac_add_options --disable-eme)
Issue also present in SeaMonkey '2.35pre' (based on Firefox 38.0.1)

Noticed that after updating SeaMonkey to the version listed above and Adobe Flash Player to v 17.0.0.134, Shockwave for Director doesn't get keyboard focus. Mouse works fine though.
This makes it extremely awkward to play the two games which are the only reasons I have Shockwave installed. :P

Workaround:
1) Upgrade Shockwave for Director to version 12.1.7r157
2) When using Shockwave for Director, with the plugin active, open another tab then switch back.

(yes, both steps are needed)

A quick search of Bugzilla turned up nothing.

I'm pretty sure I haven't changed anything not already noted between when it worked and not.
Why is that workaround now needed?
Should I file a bug? (if so, my testing ability is limited given that this is my main machine and I've had no luck to get Shockwave for Director working in a disposable environment :( )

*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
