All I can tell you is that it doesn't happen here.  I'm on KDE 4.3.3 
though, Firefox 3.5.5 and Thunderbird 3.0b4.

My settings are:

Focus stealing prevention: Low
Policy: Click to Focus
Click raises active window: Enabled
Show window list while switching windows: Enabled
Traverse windows on all desktops: Disabled
Desktop navigation wraps around: Enabled
Popup desktop name on desktop switch: Disabled
