Clicking on evolution hides firefox and vice-versa

Asked by Chris Jefferies on 2013-08-06

When I click on evolution from the tool bar firefox disappears.
When I click on Firefox evolution disappears.
This is not to much of a problem, more jolly annoying as I normally have Firefox open on one screen and Evolution open on another.
I can tab between the 2 using Alt+TAB as the other does not appear, but if I go back to the tool bar I can select the other which then hides the current Firefox/evolution in the current session.

Your feed back will be very helpful

Thank you

What if you open Firefox and Evolution in different workspaces ? Then you can use the global tab (CTRL+ALT+TAB) to switch between them.

I'm not sure if this is a problem-bug or a feature, because of the focused application. When you click an application this app takes the whole focus and "hides" the others. (If that's what you meant)
