Firefox opens PDF, then unfocuses, when opened from the download popup menu/icon.
Hi, this is a minor problem and more a quality-of-life thing, as there is no hard crash or bug per se. Context: I need to print a LOT of things every month for the job, so I download a LOT of PDFs.
Problem: When downloading a PDF, if I open it via the dropdown menu in the menubar, it opens, but immediately unfocuses Firefox. That's it. Why the unfocusing? Lol.
Limits: If I mark PDFs to open automatically (in the options) instead of downloading, then it opens fine and no loss of focus. Same thing if I open from a folder, it's set to open in Firefox and it does so, with no loss of focus. As far as I can tell, the issue appears only when opening from the download button/icon/dropdown menu from the menubar.
Suggestion 1) Adding a "Download AND Open in Firefox" option in the settings would be my ultimate greatest option but.... maybe not the best for cluttering millions of people's browser options. It's just what "I" want to do ;)
Suggestion 2) Trace where it loses focus and re-focus / prevent loss of focus when opening from the menu.
