Dear Mr. Yamamoto,

when clicking mailto links, the new message composing window gets openend, but it remains in the background.

Please change it, so that clicking mailto links brings the new message composing window into the foreground.

It would be much appreciated.

Tested with Sylpheed 3.4beta7 Win32 on Win7 x64.

I've checked this issue, but I can't reproduce it.
mailto link works and shows window into the foreground.


Sylpheed 3.4beta7 (zip archive) & sylpheed-mailto-protocol_user.reg(modified path) on Windows 7 (64bit)

At least, it seems that zip package doesn't have nothing to do with this issue.

For me it does not work.

Also tested on Win8.1 x64 in the meantime.

Clicking on a mailto link inside a browser does open Sylpheed and does open a compose window.

But it's all happening in the background.

So, when clicking on the mailto link, I still see the browser and not Sylpheed (the Sylpheed taskbar button is flashing though, indicating that something happenend inside Sylpheed).
