Okay, sometimes, firefox will be "always on top" where it'll block dashboard, a video playing in full screen, and windows behind it when u try to bring them up front.

what's the problem? it not a setting. i close it and reopen and it'll be fine...

I have the same problem sometimes, but I have a program on the dashboard that hides all the windows, so that tends to work.

I use Firefox as my main browser on my iMac and also see this problem. I have been able to connect the issue to an add-on called 'Downloadhelper' in my case. Every time I use it, the browser window gets set to 'always on top' I have to close and reopen the browser to correct the issue.

Does anyone have a way to correct the setting without closing the browser?

Thanks,
Donn

Since this post, I have experienced the same problem with FF. I am assuming it is a bug.

It seems to only happen to me when viewing DivX videos with the DivX web player or Google Video content (both via tv-links). I use OSX 10.4.10 and Firefox 2.0.0.7.

Also, does anybody else have problems when trying to resize a DivX movie when viewing it in the web player?

I have noticed the same problems. On that same site, Safari almost always crashes.
