Default Main window constantly grabs focus

For the past year or so, JDownloader has been grabbing the focus on my system on both Windows 7 and Windows 10.

When new links are added from the clipboard, the window tries to grab focus whether it is minimized or not. When minimized, this forces the Windows taskbar to surface above other windows, forcing me to find the JDownloader window in order to give it focus and let the taskbar go back to normal.

Strangely, JDownloader will also grab focus at random times, when there are no links being added to it through the clipboard and it's just sitting in the background idle.

I've tried uninstalling JDownloader and reinstalling multiple times, including to different directories and starting fresh with new settings.

In Settings under User Interface -> Window Management, I have tried checking Silent Mode and also keep the "When new link as added, then" value as "Do Nothing." Bubble notifications are disabled.

Thanks for any advice.

Can you please provide screenshot of your Settings-User Interface?
What did you setup for "Show new Dialogs" ?
Does it happen for ALL links or only some?

Thanks for your helpful questions - I've attached a screenshot, as requested.

The current Dialog setting is "according to Windows 8 specifications" and this behavior happens for all links added to the Linkgrabber tab (usually over the Clipboard).

And, the Linkgrabber tab will seem to cause JDownloader window to grab focus at seemingly random times - it will be idle, no downloads, nothing new on the Clipboard and suddenly it grabs focus again.

What happens when you change "show new dialogs" ? Does this fix the issue?

I recall trying that option in the past, to no effect.

I just reinstalled again and set it to "behind all windows", which worked. So, problem solved, thanks.

And . . . this needs to be opened as an issue, again :( .

Although the setting seemed to suppress the window from taking focus at first, two days later it started doing so again and has continued doing so, since.

So, nothing has been solved.

Any ideas?

Can we do a teamviewer session? We cannot reproduce the issue. Did you try to disable the balloons in Settings-Bubble Notify ?
