Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2022-04-06 16:09:24 UTC
This is a problem I am hitting for a long time but I am unsure about if other people can reproduce. 

Simply try to go to gmail account, choose to create a new mail and try to attach a file. 

Sometimes the first time it works, but if you click on cancel and retry, file chooser is always opened without getting the focus. 

I am now running under Gnome 41 and it happens the same with X or wayland. On the other hand firefox and epiphany work properly. I have also tried to use Chrome in Incognito mode, but I have the same issue :/

The same issue happens with a newly created user account and fresh configuration for everything 

Thanks for your guidance

I tested with KDE Plasma, and the KDialog window has focus when I add an attachment in Gmail.
