In photoshop go to Window and uncheck Application Frame
Thanks! That seemed to work. ( you are the world's greatest )
Why would someone want to use that anyways? It makes no sense when I show that I am out of Photoshop (as shown in Chrome), but none of my windows will collapse
I can't work without it: to each their own.
I prefer to enable the AF, too. Unlike the OP, having it enabled does not prevent other apps moving in front of Ps when I switch app on OS X 10.6.8.
I can reproduce this by doing the following:
- Run Google Chrome
- Run Photoshop
- Use the application frame
- Have one or more floating windows
- With Photoshop in the foreground click on the chrome window title bar
Result: The Chrome window end up under the floating Photoshop window
When I drag Chrome, it properly moves to the front.
I am only able to reproduce this with Chrome. Mail, Safari, Firefox all work as expected.
I this what you are seeing?
I like to bounce between the two, as I might want to switch songs in Pandora, or answer e-mails via Chrome. This seems to be what is happening. Photoshop just takes the front window. Always.
Thank you for confirming that this issue is specific to using Google Chrome.
It looks like you are solving this issue by not using the application frame. Another option is to use command+tab to switch between the applications. We will investigate the issue further.

The good news is that you got the attention of exactly the right engineer to work on that issue :-).
I'm not sure if my problem is similar tothis one:
I use Safari as my browser.
What is happening is that when I have several photos currently open, some of them will end up behind the screen, after I move them around on my screen (e.g. to access one behind the other).
They keep disappearing, and I have to constantly go to Window >>>Arrange >>> Consolicate All to Tabs or Float All in Windows.
Can you help?
