As you may have noticed, FTB refocuses about four times while launching the selected pack. For example, if I launch it and then come to Arqade, it refocuses when it checks for an update for the pack. then, it refocuses during the Forge initialization. Then it refocuses yet again when the window for the pack appears. How can you prevent this from happening?

Darn. I will accept that as an answer. – Jeffrey Lin Apr 2 '13 at 2:23
I tried to make it an answer and it automatically converted my "trivial" answer to a comment. :S – SevenSidedDie Apr 2 '13 at 3:13
@SevenSidedDie More research needed, clearly. – fredley Apr 10 '13 at 12:49
Why was this downvoted? – Jeffrey Lin Apr 10 '13 at 19:05

Put simply, No you cannot.

Your only option would be grabbing the FTB launcher code and compiling your own with workarounds to prevent it stealing focus.
