Emacs 26.1 NS port is on Apple Mac OS.

There is the chance of the following call to work, no?

  `defaults write org.gnu.Emacs FocusFollowsMouse -bool true`

If not, why not one day in the far off distant future.

From what I can tell "M-x report-emacs-bug” needs 
email set in Emacs and a look at Gnus involves putting 
cleartext password on a one line setting

It is the setting that takes no effect 
the perceived bug that does not work as 
expected and desired, which is the cause
for this bug#31975 report.
