there is no rule action (yet) to define a specific window as avtive when switching to a desktop. The default behaviour is setting the window active which was active when leaving the respective desktop.
This hardly ever works on my system (Win2000). I can leave a virtual desktop with, say, Firefox the "current" window, and when I switch back, the "current" window will be another window on the same desktop. This happens with every desktop. I've selected the option to keep the task bar's order, but the active window is always random.
I've found other strangenesses and quirks with Firefox and Thunderbird. Firefox, in particular, occasionally has an annoying habit of maximizing web controls into opaque and empty windows that block any text or other window from under them until the current window/tab is closed. Very annoying, and I'm sure this is some strange interaction between Firefox and Dexpot.
Other than this, Dexpot is still the best Virtual Desktop system I've seen for Windows... and it's free!
