Linux - Split screen and window focus

Do you want to: Suggest a feature / Report a bug / Ask a how-to question - all of them i guess?

I think this is a very specific user need, but I have to ask for your help anyway.

I work with 2 windows at the same time split on the screen. OnlyOffice Desktop Editors on the right and a web browser (usually Firefox or Brave) on the left side. I write my documents while reading case files for lawsuits on my browser.

When I hover my cursor to the browser window (i.e. to scroll the case files), OnlyOffice Desktop Editors lose focus and I can’t keep on typing unless I hover the cursor back to OnlyOffice Desktop Editors.

Just to be very clear, this happens when I simply hover and scroll on the other window.

This does not happen with other office suites for Linux, such as FreeOffice, Softmaker Office and LibreOffice.

It happens on any Desktop Environment (KDE Plasma, Gnome Shell, XFCE, although I am aware that XFCE has its own issues with window focus in its Accessibility settings)

OS version: Manjaro KDE 21
App version:
Downloaded from: pre-installed in Manjaro KDE

Thank you in advance.

Hello @pablogvieira
I am able to reproduce your scenario on Manjaro v.21. We need some time to take a closer look at it. When I get any news, I will update this post.
