I'm guessing you are using MacOS Catalina, for which this is a known problem. Sorry, there is no Chimera setting to control it. One possibility is to use ChimeraX instead, which does not have this problem, but it depends on which tools/features you are using. ChimeraX has the same map fitting and many other things as Chimera. Some currently missing features are listed in the ChimeraX download page.
This separate-instance problem was mentioned in earlier posts, for example:
