Whenever I get an iTunes link, like:
it never opens up in iTunes. I get the "One Moment Please, connecting to the iTunes store" message, but iTunes never gets focus or goes to the link location.
This has been happening for at least a year for me. It used to work (albeit slowly).
I wonder if it has to do with another iTunes problem I'm seeing: Cmd-Tab app switching does not give focus to iTunes. I have to click on the window to switch to it. And if it's hidden, I have to use Expose to find it. Even clicking on the iTunes icon in the dock doesn't do it.
I'm running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, iTunes 9.0(70)
