Bug Description

Old way:
Click on inbox 3 in indicator messages and thunderbird became the foreground application with the first of the 3 emails in the inbox selected.

New Way:
Click on inbox 3 in indicator messages and thunderbird stays in the background with the first of the 3 emails in the inbox selected which makes it less usable.
