I am finally frustrated with modality on Thunderbird/Enigmail. Maybe someone can tell me how to turn this behavior off. “Attach Modal Dialog” in gnome-tweaks is ‘off,’ but this has no effect on my problem.
If I send an e-mail to someone that requires encryption or a signature, I get the Enigmail dialog box that asks for the passphrase, which is correct. Unfortunately, it not only locks Thunderbird, it seems to lock the entire Gnome desktop. If KeePassXC has timed-out, I cannot retrieve the appropriate passphrase in it. I have to ‘Cancel’ and try to send again after I get the information for which it is asking.
I would fine with the application being modal, but not the whole desktop. This is not a show-stopper but it is annoying.
I have all PureOS updates through today, Oct. 16, and I am using gnome 3.22+11. (Other gnome apps are 3.28 and 3.30. gnome-tweaks is 3.30.) Thunderbird is 52.9 and Enigmail is 2.0.8.
