Test with Safari. I just did and the feature works as expected. Perhaps a Firefox issue or Firefox/Mavericks issue more than OS X.

Yeah, I notice that it's Firefox specifically now. Firefox even re-appears from hidden when Firefox is hidden and Safari is behind the Finder window.

When you have a chance, could you test this with Firefox to see if the problem occurs for you as well?

I'm glad I'm not the only one seeing this. Ever since upgrading to Mavericks (from 10.6.8), whenever I close an app (cmd+q) a seemingly-random app gets focus. I'm sure it's not actually random, but I can't find the pattern. Previously the most-recently-used app would regain focus. I'm seeing this problem with any app, not just Firefox.
A specific use-case that's been bothering me is I'm working in terminal, launch gitk, look at my tree, cmd+q, and the focus jumps to finder (which was in the background) rather than putting me back in terminal.

I've noticed that the problem has disappeared for me with Firefox, for some reason (I didn't change anything). I hope the problem doesn't re-occur with me with another app, but I'll respond back if it does.

I'm getting this with Eclipse and MAMP. Instead of returning to Eclipse when quitting my app, it's going to MAMP. Really annoying! Anyone managed to fix this?

I have this same exact problem but with a different app. So frustrating

Apparently this can solve this issue: https://discussions.apple.com/message/23600889#23600889
However, it only works temporarily for me.
