Evolution, Firefox, KDE, and Window Focus


Hopefully that thread title isn't too wordy.

I just switched from gnome to KDE and am having this annoying bug: if I click on a link in Evolution while Firefox is open, it opens the link in a new tab... but does NOT switch focus to Firefox. Evolution stays on top. When reading my topic reply notifications from these forums, that becomes quite annoying to have to manually switch focus.

Anyone have thoughts on this? it worked fine under gnome.

I think it is set as the default: when I click on a link in Evolution, it does load it in Firefox, it just doesn't give the firefox window focus.

I believe in KDE there is an AutoFocus option under Appearances which automatically gives focus to the window that is active.
