Pretty much the title is all i have to say. I don't know if this could be sway related but firefox and mpv remain usable after switching tty.

There does seem to be some other bugs related to switching the TTY. On firefox 67.0, if I navigate to this github issue and then switch TTY when I go back to the sway TTY firefox crashes. This does not happen if firefox is loaded without navigating to a web page. This seems to have resolved itself after I reset my FF profile.

Upon further research, I believe this is a sway-specific issue. I tried creating a wterm window in weston, and was able to switch TTYs and successfully use the same terminal window. I did notice the wterm window was "unfocused" and the terminal was black - once I clicked on the wterm window it regained focus and I was able to type again. According to sway devs wterm needs to handle seat capability events
