KDE or Firefox desktop switching problem.problem?

I'm on F10 + Firefox 3.5.4 that I got from http://blog.famillecollet.com/ +

Also, I did an update so I'm running kde 4.3.2.

Here's the problem. I'm in tbird on desktop 1 with firefox running in desktop
2, and a message has a URL in it. I click on the URL in tbird which causes the
URL to load in the firefox on desktop 2. But now for some reason that I can't
figure out, firefox pops over to desktop 1. If I click and quickly switch to
desktop 2 then I can usually get there before firefox pops over to desktop 1.

I happen to have kde window behaviour set to "Focus Follows Mouse" with Focus
Stealing prevention level to Low. Also, I have Default Applications ->
webrowser set to firefox.

Can someone tell me if this is a firefox problem or a kde problem? Or how to
fix this or debug it?
