Focus Stealing Across Desktops - Firefox/T-bird


I have an interesting problem. I ran across this a while back in KDE, but was able to easily fix it there. However, in Gnome/OpenSuSE 10.1, I'm having this problem again. I keep Thunderbird open in Work Space 4 at all times. I keep Firefox open in Work Space 3. When I click on a link in T-bird, FF jumps over from WS 3 to WS 4 and steals focus from T-bird. My question is this: is there a way to modify application focus parameters in Gnome like there is in KDE. I don't have this problem in any of my other Gnome distros... Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora Core.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance...

~Eric
