My question is: under what I should report it as? telegram? tuta-nota?
brisk? gnome?

** Description changed:

  Using a fully patched 22.04 system (after a reformat), I am having
  problems with several of the applications that are minimized to the
  system tray.
  The problem is mostly with: signal-desktop, keepassx, tutanota mail and
  Oddly enough hexchat does not give this problem.
  The problem is that everytime I minimized a window back into the tray
  that when I click back on it to put it back on the foreground that it
  does not do anything. I need to re-minimize it and then re-toggle it for
  it to come back so I can see and use it.
  For example:
  1. use telegram;
  2. minimize telegram;
  3. clicking on telegram icon in system tray then select "open telegram" = nothing happens.
  4. clicking a 2nd time on the telegram icon in the system tray now shows me the options: "minimize to tray, enable notifications & quit telegram". Hence it shows the options as if the focus would be on the screen but it is nowhere displayed on my desktop;
  5. selecting "minimize to tray" and re-re-clicking on the telegram tray icon again shows me "open telegram, enable notifs & quit" AND brings back the telegram window on the foreground.
  6. When I minimize the application it brings back to the same state of point #3.
  Same problem w/ keepassx:
  1. open keepassx -> tools menu -> settings -> general -> check "hide window to system tray when minimized";
  2. copy a password off keepassx = keepassx dissapears under the system tray;
  3. clicking on the keepassx tray icon shows "toggle window and quit";
  4. selecting "toggle window" = keepassx window stays hidden;
  5. I need to do this twice everytime I wish to use this application.
  Nota bene: this behavior seems to happen some time after I started using
  X. For example immediately after a reboot, minimize and maximizes off
  tray will work. But after I opened a couple of window (Firefox,
  terminator, caja, etc) then it starts to manifest as I described it.
