frequently work with Emacs windows that are in the background, and
have "focus follows mouse" set so that I could type into such windows.

And you would miss the tooltip so much? :)

So I don't see how your suggestion could
be implemented in practice.

My suggestion was to check whether the window is active right before displaying the tooltip. If the window is not active, the tooltip gets not displayed. Maybe the tooltip should still be displayed if "focus follows mouse" is set.

I don't see how this messes with your Emacs usage. Also don't know yet if it's feasible. But that's just a preliminary suggestion. If it gets accepted, it may be the simplest way to help the issue.

However Mozilla Thunderbird tooltips do not have this side effect. And sometimes Mozilla is even capable of supressing the incorrect Emacs behaviour. And I don't see its Mozilla's "create message" window be affected by Emacs. Yeah, this is not quite straighforward.
