Click on thunderbird email link does not switch over to new Firefox window
 
Hello Linux users,
I am running KDE 3.5 Hardy Ubuntu and have encounterd an odd window switch to new window view problem.
When I click to open a web link in any Thunderbird email it will open Firefox but it stays on the current Thunderbird window. I have to manually click the FF on the task bar to switch and view it. Maybe it's a focus issue....not sure what focus really means.
It also seems to do the same with other programs too.

Thanks
I appreciate any help you can offer.

FIXED......

fyi by turning off focus stealing in kcontrol from LOW to NONE fixed this problem

KControl -> Desktop -> Window Behavior -> Advanced Tab -> Focus staling prvention level: NONE

and I unchecked Hide utility windows for inactive applications (this uncheck part maybe unnecessary)

Thanks to all linux users who helped me!
