Im not sure whats going on, but say I have my Firefox window open, then I open a Finder window. I use Finder, then close the window. I then see my Firefox window, but when I click on that window, another applications window will popup instead. Im not sure why this is happening, but it happens all the time. Is there a setting I can toggle to prevent this?

Well the bottom checkbox is checked because TextXpander needs it checked. I unchecked it to see if helped, but it didnt help at all.

Any other ideas on what this may be? Its becoming a real PITA.
