Options menu flashing when left-clicking on Anytype tray icon on MacOS

Describe the bug
When I right-click on the tray icon of Anytype, it shows a menu with options like “Open Anytype”, “Settings”, “Check for updates” etc., this is expected behavior. However, when I left-click this icon and expect the same behavior or immediate switch to the Anytype application, first a menu flashes for a moment, and then the Anytype app opens.

To Reproduce

  1. Open Anytype
  2. Left-click on the tray icon on top of the screen
  3. See the flashing menu and be redirected to the app

Expected behavior
Typically tray icons have the same behavior on both right- and left-click. I would expect a menu to be opened, with an option “Open Anytype”.

System Information:

  • OS: MacOS 12.3.1
  • Device Manufacturer/Model: Macbook Pro 13" 2015 with Touchbar
  • Anytype Version: 0.25.0

Additional context
It seems like the behavior of left-click on the tray icon has not been decided on, so it performs two actions simultaneously, like opening Anytype and opening the menu.

This is the menu I am talking about, opened using a right-click:

Use a Mac and can confirm that this happens as well. I’d suggest that left clicking should just redirect to the Anytype app without opening the menu.

Hey, is that still happening?
