Think of this from the user's point of view. They have minimised
firefox as they are entitled and expected to do. They then later
select `get help online' and nothing happens. (NB that the user
probably has no idea that `get help online' is anything to do with
You may well be correct that firefox is behaving as intended but I
would argue the intent is wrong in at least this case. I don't have a
complete understanding of all of the relevant machinery and I'm not
arguing for any particular way of fixing this problem.
It may be that we need a new interface between other applications and
firefox, where another application can request that firefox be a bit
more vigorous about presenting the requested url.
