Hey just had a quick look at thread cause i had the same issue but just found what worked for me was to go to tools>options>skin
then make sure MM is overriding the skin theme with windows theme.

Goodluck

It would be good to make choice possibility "Always on top". It is especially useful at video viewing.

However NOT when using the button in the window decoration on the top-righ of the MM windowt!

Only if you minimize MM TWICE by clicking on the taskbar icon each time!!!
After the second restoring from Minimized state MM is consistently in ALWAYS ON TOP mode.
I went from 1424 straight to 1430 (sorry for not testing recently, ive been making a skin) and I too have this problem when MM will "always stay on top" of any window unless unless you forcefully minimise MM using the windows top right system buttons.

Flinx42s steps to reproduce are exactly the same as mine:

1. Minimise MM by clicking ONLY the taskbar pin button (or equivalent in other Windows OS's)
2. Maximise again ONLY by clicking the taskbar pin button
3. Redo steps 1. and 2. again so you've minimised and maximised twice
4. Now you see MM again, if you click on any other pin button for another program, then these won't show and will stay hidden behind MM.
4. Once you click minimise in the top right corner then MM will go behind all windows and you can see the other programs again
5. However if you maximise again via pin button, MM will forever stay "always on top" until you restart MM

I can also confirm the fix mentioned in this thread by making playlist not be "Always on Top" works and I do also have IE9.

Hope that helps and hopefully you devs can repro or make playlist never "Always on Top" by default.

Indeed that's what I mean. It's not a solution, but at least I can make it go away.

Willy, what cure are you referring to? (I thought you still experience the issue).

He means what Random said in 7 steps. Although its effect will not remain and the problem will occur again.

I have this issue too. I noticed it because I can't go to the taskbar, which is set on auto-hide.
I have IE9, but it's not my standard browser.

I have this annoyance as well, but I don't use IE as my main browser (Version 8.0.7601.17514).

Please note that it never occurs when a dialog window is opened in MM.
