Description misterx42 2023-08-13 21:43:12 UTC
Whenever a search dialogue (ctrl+f) is opened, I can't alt+tab out of Calc. This happens about 90% of the time (it does work randomly). The window is actually out of focus, as I can see the transparency kicking in, but it won't let the other windows into foreground. Most of the time this applies to alt+tabbing, but rarely, even clicking the task tray to get a different window into focus triggers this. Closing the search prompt makes Calc behave normally again.

Arch, Linux 6.4.10, XFCE on Xorg.

Thanks for the report.
This issue is already tracked in bug 156232, so I am marking as duplicate.
