I am not sure if Experts Exchange is the only website that does this, since it is the only one that was like this before, that I am aware of.  Something must have got changed to cause this?  It's just a lot more convenient to click on "view question" and have the "solution window" pop up to the for front of all the windows.   This is a new computer with current windows 7, and IE 9 software.  I just updated my IE 8 to IE 9.  Other than that, everything is the same.

No.  I haven't tried that yet.  Perhaps, I should try going back to IE 8?

Did you had this not with IE8? Only with IE9?

Just try to see what happen. It can be browser related.

I uninstalled IE9. I am back to IE 8 and still have the same problem.  When I click on the "VIEW THIS QUESTION" window, I have to either minimize or close this window to view the "SOLUTION" window.

Discovered that I had a mximized application that got downloaded from my old computer, which was windows XP.  Found out that it was not compatible with windows 7. Uninstalled application and problem went away.
