Continue from bug 34414 <editor> is always the top most element. So no element can be layed/float on top of <editor>. An example usage is to emulate the netscape 4 floating component bar.
Quote from bug 34414 that might outline the problem ------- Additional Comment #10 From Charles Manske 2000-07-05 18:17 ------- This bug has mutated a bit: Here's the current problem: The XUL contains this structure: <deck> <editor/> // The main editor window <textfield/> // the HTML Source editor </deck> The deck frame code "hides" each child by getting its view from the press shell and setting the size to 0,0. But recent changes in the <editor> tag (probably by hyatt?) are such that there is no view associated directly with the <editor> outermost frame. Thus the deck code fails. Temporary kludge is to wrap <editor> in a <stack>, which has a view. I will keep this bug open so hyatt can investigate and make the proper fix, but I'll check in the temporary <stack> fix so the feature doesn't block other nsbeta2+ work, such as the chrome enabling/disabling (38875).
