In desktop #4 i am reading usenet news using knode or whatever and click on a link in some article. Now i see a minimized icon on the task bar for firefox on my currently in use desktop #4 - so ok, i click on that and i am relocated to desktop #1 where the link opens in a second tab. This isnt what i want. i really want a new session of firefox to open in desktop #4 if there isnt one there already, but if there is one already open in desktop #4 THEN go ahead and open the link as a 2nd tab in that session only and leave the firefox in desktop #1 alone. I hope i have been clear in describing what i am seeing. Is there a way to fix this so activities using firefox in one desktop dont affect an open firefox in another desktop? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Setup kde for 4 desktops 2. in desktop #1 open firefox to google or where-ever you like 3. switch to any other desktop besides desktop #1 - say desktop #4 4. in desktop #4 click on a link from email, knode or where-ever 4. observe that a minimized icon for firefox appears on the taskbar in desktop #4 5. click the taskbar icon - and you will be re-routed to desktop #1 where the link is opened in a new tab 6. what "should" happen is: desktop #1 should be left unaffected. a new instance of firefox should open (and not minimized) in desktop #4 "-OR-" if an instance of firefox is already open in desktop #4 a new tab should be added there Actual Results: apparently each desktop is searched for an active instance of firefox and a new tab is added to the first one found - Expected Results: If i am working in desktop #z PLEASE do not touch any other desktop - i am in desktop #z because i dont want to mess with stuff already up in other desktops. Constrain firefox activity to the active desktop in view e.g. if i am in desktop #3 and click a link there open it in firefox in desktop #3 regardless of any other instances of firefox that may be running on desktops #1 #2 or #4 etc. If desktop #3 already has an instance of firefox running and i click on a link in desktop #3 then open it in a new tab there in the firefox on desktop #3 Also, if i click a link firefox should not start minimized - if the above is fixed then i would expect this behavior to disappear anyway, its an artifact of the incorrect behavior described above mandriva 2010.0 x86_64 kde 4.3.5 firefox 3.6.8 4 desktops enabled on taskbar multi-gigabytes of free memory and hdd space available
