Firefox Bookmarks, Tools, History Window Not Coming On Top

more options

I am using:

  • Mozilla Firefox 94.0
  • Linux Mint 20.2
  • Linux Kernel 5.4.0-90-generic

In Firefox, the issue is with

  • Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks
  • Tools > Downloads
  • History > Show All History

If I have opened Bookmarks then for some reason minimized the window , or clicked somewhere so the Bookmarks window is in the background , and I again click `Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks` , nothing happens . My expectation in the Bookmark Window will come on top.

This is true for Download and History window as well.

If I have opened Bookmarks / Download / History then for some reason minimized the window , or clicked somewhere so the Bookmarks / Download / History window is in the background , and I again click `Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks` or `Tools > Downloads` or `History > Show All History` nothing happens . My expectation in the Menu option I clicked, its Window will come on Top.

Just to be clear I have even tried by clicking `Always on Top` on the Bookmarks / Download / History window.

Why this is not happening?

I'm not able to reproduce the issue. Do you have the same issue with Firefox in Safe Mode? What Desktop?

Try downloading another copy of Firefox and run it from the folder. Do not sign into your Firefox account and see if you have the same issue.

The guys here told me to use Mozilla version many months ago and I've not gone back to my distro version. Nightly is my daily driver, but I have the distro version and a separate version for troubleshooting and as a backup for my synced items.
