Plugin window inaccessible after new file tab is opened

I posted about this in “Questions”, but I think it might be more appropriate in “Bugs”, since it appears to be for any plugin, not just mine.

When I have a plugin running in a Figma file and I attempt to create a new file via the “+” tab, then go back to the original file, the plugin UI window has disappeared and cannot be re-launched until I close that file. This applies to any plugin that has a window open, not just the one I’m currently working on. It looks like Figma still thinks the UI window is open, but it’s not accessible to the user.
