I have asked this in the past, and someone else recently asked a similar
question. When I press F1 in Mathematica and the HelpBrowser is already
opened, the only thing that happens is that the icon in the task bar flashes.
I have also noticed that when I open Mozilla from the command line, the
profile dialog does not come to the fore. If I open Mozilla in the Alt+F2
launch field, the profile dialog comes to the fore. If I have kdict open,
and Alt+F2, it _does_ come to the fore. That is an improvement on the status
some months back.
This may be a security feature intended to prevent malicious programs from
hijacking a password dialog, etc., but I would like to override it in some
cases. Is there a way I can get Mathematica's HelpBrowser, and other such
apps to do more than flash the icon when the window is selected?
