hello. i have this new problem: (OSX 10.4.9, Firefox 2.0.0.5) my firefox window stays at the top. so when i try to use any toolbar menus (say, bookmarks), or even see the dock, it all "shows up" behind the firefox window. if i move the window over, i can use them.

how can i fix this? how can i get the window to stay at the back.
thanks

i'm not really understanding at all.

Galatians 5:1

It is for Freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

well i've noticed another odd thing about it...maybe this will help

say i've got a firefox window open. when i move it around, i shouldn't be able to move it over top of the very top tool bar...it should bump up under the bottom edge of it. but that's not what happens...i can move it all the way up, blocking that very top tool bar.

so if i place the firefox window just under the very top toolbar, and i click on one of the items, say bookmarks, that bookmark menu is under or behind the firefox window...i can't see it...


hopefully that clears it up a bit
thanks

Sounds like you need to quit and relaunch firefox.
I've seen that happen a few times.
