phpstorm auto opening directory on focus (ubuntu/phpstorm7.1)

Hey there,

I am running Ubuntu 14 and PHPStorm 7.1, working on a Symfony2 (PHP framework) project, and somtimes I'll make a change in my code, refresh the browser and hit an error, and then alt tab back to PHP storm. When I alt+tab back into phpstorm, it auto expands my projects cache folder and focuses on a folder in there (could be related to the page im viewing in the browser?). I am guessing maybe I accidently enabled something but I am not sure what. Any ideas on how to disable this?

Hi there,

Interesting behavior...

Try disabling all 3rd party (not bundled by default) plugins and see if it will behave any different.

If that will help -- try re-enabling plugins one by one until you find one that does it.

I confirmed its opening the folder for the cached symfony profiler page for the error message im seeing. Disabling the plugins didn't seem to stop it, but I noticed when I have the dropdown in the upper left hand set to 'Project' instead of 'Project Files' it doesnt happen. That solves it for me.
