    dear people!

    on my computer, i have a java-app that is used for time-management, a workig-time journal so to say.

    the page opens normally, I click on my button and then i am enabled to file my hours according to the projects I have been working on.

    That`s were the trouble starts...!!:(

    1. after some clicks and inputs, the current window disappeares ("jumps") to the background, not to be seen anymore.
    2. if I klick into the space where it SHOULD BE, it shortly flashes into visibility, just to jump back on the release of the left mouse-button.
    3. after some moments it eventually appears again- but only occasionally. in general it stays "away".
    4. if i hit some menu-buttons like "file, view, extra" it comes back to stay permanently AS IT SHOULD BY ITSELF!
    5. this hapens since I switched from XP to Win7 and from SBS2003 to SBS2011
    6. it happens with all browsers: IE, Mozilla, Chrome,...u name it!
    7. I am the bloody sys-admin of this little office and even in forums noone sems to know nothing about it...i start to feel really stupid!
    8. data-input/analysis works but VERY UNCOMFORTABLE!!
    a screenshot of the app with the 2 layer (of which BOTH sometimes disappear!)
    DID NOT WORK WHEN I POSTED IT but i can send it via mail or whatever...anyway i can just show u the popups that SHOULD be there, but wouldn`t be ;)
    it should be attached now...

    what I tried:
    • update java+ browsers to the latest issue
    • try all browsers
    • delete/disable java-cache/ temp-files
    • restart
    • use different computers
    • talk to the guy who programmed it
    • disable/enable all kinds of silly mouse-options
    • search forums online for other "vicitims"
    • get mad + stall
    please help!
    thank u a lot!(y):)(y):)

    don`t hesitate if u need anything, like logfiles, etc...!

    ok...to be more precise: It is a Java Applet!

    seemingly ther is a conflict concerning the priority of the open windows/Layers.
    it is a rather old app, so maybe the "requests" it makes (i was told it would do such a thing!?) are not understood by the browsers?

    anybody out there?

    Seems like a programming issue, nothing you can do. Ask the developer for updates.

    Anyway, what is happening when you resize the browser window?

    when i resize the browser window, one can see the "missing windows" behind the smaller Main Window.

    I can`t get an update from the developer, because the old java-script libraries are not longer available under which it was programed. at least that was what I understood when asking about another issue.

    but this didn`t occure under XP or the browsers I used there?

    it seems to be a priority-issue, which window to keep in the front, isn`t it?

    please be creative... !
