OEP window unnecesarily gains focus

Hello,
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.

Best Regards,
Radek

Same with links in this feed:

(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.

Would it help to use the Options dialog - Confirmations - select "Start downloading the new URL"?

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.

I am sorry for misunderstanding! I just fixed it.

No problem.
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)

Strange. The latest version doesn't popup in this case. I just checked this. I hope to release the new version this week. I would ask you to test it.

Good news. In OEP 4.4.2478 SR1, released today, everything is OK. Thank you!
