FF is "always on top" occasionally

For the past coupla iterations of FF I've been having this occasional problem: FF remains "always on top" of my windows, even if others are highlighted, even over my Win taskbar, which is set to auto-hide and locked. I usually drop my cursor down to the bottom of the page to pop up the taskbar, but now I have to hit the winkey. Once I get FF minimized, things are fine. If this occurs I close all tabs, flush the cache, then reboot FF; problem fixed.

I have FF 22.0 on an HP p6720f running under Win7 Home Premium x64.

Please make sure that Firefox is not in full screen mode (press F11 or Fn + F11 to toggle; Mac: command+Shift+F).

I never have FF in full screen mode, just a maximized window. As for the "corrupt localstore.rdf", I'll keep it in mind.

I've seen previous support questions with similar problems where switching into fullscreen mode and then out again would fix the problem. Maybe try that next time as well.

If none of this solves the problem then I would try troubleshooting in Safe Mode and failing that do a Reset.

I hope that helps.

Thanks. That would be cool if a simple F11 would do the trick. Ipsa scientia potestas est!
