This one is complex so bear with with me.
Using Windows 10 1909, ACR 12.2.1, Photoshop 21.1.2, Lightroom 9.2.1.
I have Preferences for external editor set to Edit in Photoshop 2020 set to TIFF.
IF I have both LR and PS open and send a JPG file to PS using Edit a copy with LR adjustments, it sends it to PS but does not bring PS window to the top leave it underneath or minimised.. I have to change to PS using Task Switcher. If, however, I use the Edit a copy or edit original  options then it works as I would expect, bringing the PS window to the top with image loaded.

Oddly if I change the Preferences for external editor to open in PS to PSD, then it all works fine.

No 100% consistent but 9/10 times doesn't work.
