Hi there, if you are writing the pop-up like this: var handler = window.open("popup.html"); then the following code, will put the focus on pop-up, whuch means pop-up will always be displayed on top every-time, you are creating.
Most modern browsers won't let you do this easily or completely. There are ways around every modal window approach I've found, assuming you aren't trying to take over the desktop. Unless you're trying to create a remote, you may be better off using AJAX to create a "pop-in."
