Enlightenment 17 problem.

I'm running enlightenment 17.5 on Slackware 14.1. I just switched from Archlinux which has e18 something and switching desktops was a bit different. In the arch version if I had thunderbird running in one desktop and firefox was open in another, then when I clicked a link in thunderbird it would automatically switch desktops to the one with firefox. The slackware version doesn't do that, at least by default. I was checking the configuration and noticed an entry called "Jump to desk." which sounded promising. I enabled that, but it didn't do anything. Does anyone know where I should look to enable this?

I figured it out. It's a Window focus issue. In the Window focus settings > Advanced > New Window Focus, I selected All Windows. The default was Only dialogs.
