Steps to reproduce:

1.) Open Thunderbird/Earlybird (using Earlybird 42.0a2 2015-09-11)
2.) Click Chat on the Toolbar
3.) Click Show accounts on the Toolbar
4.) Select 'New Account' - Chat Account Wizard opens...
5.) Go fullscreen with Earlybird if you haven't already
6.) Click 'Show Accounts' again .... Nothing happens.

The only way to view the Show Accounts window is to use the task manager / alt + tab.

Maybe not the biggest issue / bug but would be cool to have the focus on it (for those who utilize fullscreen, it might be hard to find)

Actual results:

Focus did not happen on the Show Accounts button

Expected results:

Focus should have appeared on the Show Accounts button.

You mean you click "show accounts" the second time while the "new account" wizard is still open?

Yep! That is correct.  Would be cool if it would re-focus instead of staying "hidden".

But why? It seems to me the account list is intentionally hidden behind the wizard until you finish it.

A valid question, for sure.

I would disagree though.  If you wanted to kill the request -- I wouldn't mind :).  I think it has been that way a while.

Just wanted to see if it would pass.  My retort would be: 

Why not?  If you are an inexperienced (non-technical user) and you click that button with Thunderbird in full screen mode (as I did the other day), you might get confused.  I was able to figure it out ... but ... not everyone is a web dev.

To each their own.  Thanks for considering it if you do kill it.  It is appreciated \o/
