There are only two check boxes on that tab you mentioned.  You didn't ask
what any settings were, only whether or not I had tried any settings on that
tab to address the problem, and later by "how?" I assumed you were inquiring
as to which settings I tried changing.  I tried changing precisely one
setting, "Active focus stealing prevention".  The problem was not resolved,
regardless of that setting.

If you had wanted to know the what the settings were for other options on
that tab or elsewhere, you should have asked in the first place.
