(Windows 10) Firewall notifications steal focus from active window

Firewall notification popups steal focus from the active application window onto the notification popup itself (e.g. allow / deny notification).

Not only is this supremely irritating, but it can have adverse outcomes depending on what a "loss of focus" for the application losing focus means.

Ideally, the firewall [allow / deny] pop-up should not steal focus onto itself.

  • It is also impossible to close those pop-ups, unless you immediately click a couple of times. If you are unlucky and leave your PC unattended for a couple of minutes, while notification appears for the first time, well...I don't know how to remove it. Right now, there is this notification, which stays on, no matter how many times I click on Allow. Even if I click on "Block" it still stays there. This is extremely annoying. Maybe, I am wrong, but it seems to be related to July software update, as I remember being able to remove it with one click in the past. As of July, this is absolute crap and a nightmare.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
