The only option I can find with "focus follows mouse" in it is the one for 
which window has focus. The problem I'm having is that when filling in a form 
on a web page with multiple text boxes, moving the mouse around changes which 
box I am typing into. This can cause me to type half of what I'm typing into 
one box and half into another if the mouse gets jogged whilst typing. Also, 
if the mouse moves over a link it takes focus away from the text box, which 
is also annoying.
