http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello Linux users, I am running KDE 3.5 Hardy Ubuntu and have encounterd an odd window switch to new window view problem. When I click to open a web link in any Thunderbird email it will open Firefox but it stays on the current Thunderbird window. I have to manually click the FF on the task bar to switch and view it. Maybe it's a focus issue....not sure what focus really means. It also seems to do the same with other programs too. Thanks I appreciate any help you can offer. Chris Ricksen chris@palmbeac (HowTos)
