I've observed that OEP (*sometimes*) unnecesarily gains focus (its window is being activated) when it stays in the background (or is minimized) and a user choses to download (make it available offline) a link from a browser (e.g. IE) via browser's context menu.
In my case, I read news with FeedDemon (RSS reader), and in one feed (NewScientist: http://www.newscientist.com/feed.ns?index=online-news ) link to articles are not direct (http://www.newscientist.com/...) but indirect (e.g: http://www.pheedo.com/click.phdo?i=0c6b2ba040f7d44222f9bba729c35aaa )
When I try to 'offline' such an article/news item (via context menu in IE) OEP is being focused (although it shouldn't be), which doesn't happen otherwise (with direct links).
(In options I've chosen: "When the project URL is moved: Start downloading the new URL")
The (redirected) article is downloaded well. The only issue is the OEP window focus.
I hope, you can understand what I am trying to say/write.
It's a minor problem, but I thought I would report it.
(e.g. http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/RobBushway/~3/28863423/PermaLink,guid,2b39e938-d976-4a86-b8dc-54deee15340c.aspx )
I think you can also recreate this issue by adding any redirecting link (as the one above) as a new project, add a delay command (Delay=5), add the project to the sequencer and then quickly minimize OEP window.
As I said in the first post, that's what I've set/selected:
"(In options I've chosen: "When the project URL is moved: Start downloading the new URL")"
So in result: no confirmation message ever pops up.
Nevertheless OEP window gains focus when redirection silently happens.
But, unfortunately, the problem still exists in build 2472.
Here is another way to recreate it:
1. Activate in OEP option "Monitor clibboard" (and set: "Automaticaly start download")
2. Minimize OEP
3. Copy into clipboard any of the following URLs
4. OEP should start downloading it and will pop up to the foreground (not necesarily, in my opinion)
Good news. In OEP 4.4.2478 SR1, released today, everything is OK. Thank you!
