Issues when opening links from different applications.

Posted

When opening a link from a different application, like slack, the keyboard shortcuts like new tab and refresh do not do anything, and the left click menu is empty except for the snapshot button.

This only seems to happen if firefox is not already open and the clicking of the link opens firefox.

Until the issue is solved; When I start Firefox, I open the browser. Then I drop that window to the taskbar. Then I check any e-mail. Then go on from there. This is so that the program is not opening/closing continuously.

Also, if I close the window by accident, I can use the first window to reopen it.
