Restored browser window lacks keyboard focus

This is a pretty specific problem, but it is 100% reproducible for me - and pretty annoying.
If I minimize my browser window to the taskbar, then restore it, it doesn't have keyboard focus. I have to click in the window (or alt-tab to it) in order for the keyboard to be able to interact with the app.
The problem is pretty specific: It has to be a chromium-based web browser (Chrome/Opera/Vivaldi), running on the second monitor, with multi-monitor taskbars enabled, restored by clicking the taskbar icon - or getting opened by another app launching a web page.
If any factors are different from that specific list, keyboard focus is restored normally: minimize to first window instead of second, use a non-chromium browser like Firefox, disable multi-monitor taskbar... any of those changes cause things to work properly.
The latest DisplayFusion update had an advanced setting that seemed like it was specifically intended to address this:
Fix: Enabling the "Disallow TopMost Calls" Advanced Setting should now resolve any issues with windows not focusing properly when using left/right side taskbars
But it doesn't seem to have any affect on this issue. Is there some other setting I need to try?

Great, once it's reproducible the mystery's days are numbered!

Hi Scott,

This is still on our list, yup. I've bumped it up for us to look into for v10, but we hold no promises

Thanks!
