1. Set Firefox as default browser
2. Make sure Firefox is not running
3. Make sure "Ctrl-Click required to follow hyperlinks" is enabled (Tools->Options->LibreOffice->Security->Options)
4. Ctrl+Click any hyperlink in Writer e.g.
Expected: Firefox is opened in foreground.
Actual: Firefox is opened in background
Weird thing: If the option "Ctrl-Click required to follow hyperlinks" is OFF, this bug does not appear.
This happens only on Windows 7, not on Windows 10.
