Emailing a link from Firefox the compose window in TB no longer has focus (Windows 10)? Any ideas? Please help!

Inserita

Suddenly (just started last night, after years of no problems) when emailing a link from Firefox the compose window that opens in Thunderbird no longer has focus (Windows 10) and I have to switch to it manually with the mouse. Any ideas? I do this a dozen times a day, and this is terribly frustrating. Please help!

Nevermind. I managed to fix it by changing the mailto: in Firefox Options to Gmail and then back to Thunderbird. Odd.

That sounds like something else is "stealing" the focus. Have you tried running Firefox in safe mode to see if there might be an add-on in firefox that is causing the disruption? I is on the help menu.

I can try that. The focus is staying with firefox. I start typing the email address, which normally would appear in the right field in the new email window, and it opens a search bar and the bottom of FF and the text appears there. It seems to be happening intermittently now, rather than every time.

Running Firefox in safe mode did not affect anything. It still doesn't release the focus to Thunderbird.

I really think that this must be a Thunderbird issue, as the Compose Mail windows are sometimes opening behind another wonder rather than in front, too.
