(I just switched from Gnome 2 to Xfce 4, so I have still to find my way around how Xfce works.)

Iceweasel is opened on Workspace 1, Icedove is opened on Workspace 2. I click at a link in Icedove, which opens a tab in Iceweasel. Great, **but**: *Iceweasel* moves to Workspace 2.

Can I configure it so that windows always stay on their workspace, no matter if other application interact with them?

On Gnome 2, Iceweasel stayed on Workspace 1, but it was highlighted/blinking in the taskbar of Workspace 2. I’d like to have that (or a similar) behaviour in Xfce, too.
