Let me start with this:
No, it's not duplicate of bug 48300.
It's regression, working in 4.1.6, not working in 4.3, I think I tested it with 4.2.7 and it wasn't working, so regression is somewhere in 4.2 branch.
1. If you have any LibreOffice windows open, close them.
2. Open windows explorer and navigate to folder where you have more then one LibreOffice file. I'm testing with Calc ODS files.
3. Open any one file. LO will open it and bring focus to that file.
4. Switch back to windows exporer (via ALT-TAB or status bar), DON'T minimize opened LO window.
5. Open any other file.
Last opened file should be opened in foreground, visible.
Last opened file opens in background, windows explorer window is still on top of it.
You can test it also with opening files from e-mail program, like Thunderbird, it will produce same result.
Works for me with 18.104.22.168, win7 with two monitors - first monitor explorer, second monitor LO
Reproducible with 22.214.171.124, win7 with two monitors - first monitor explorer and LO

It works because LO brings second file window in front of first file window, but never in front of any other opened programs.
You can test it with 1 monitor, just don't maximise windows explorer window, keep it small so you can see what's happening behind it. You will notice that new file open, but not in front of explorer window.
Anyway, bringing in two monitors just complicates things and should not be focused on.
