    ....(!)the following is copied and pasted directly from the manual:

    Within a layer, Fireworks stacks objects based on the order in which they
    were created, placing the most recently created object on the top of the
    stack. The stacking order of objects determines how they appear when they
    overlap.

    Layers also affect the stacking order. For example, if a doent has two
    layers named Layer 1 and Layer 2, and Layer 1 is listed below Layer 2 on the
    Layers panel, then everything on Layer 2 appears in front of everything on
    Layer 1. You can change the order of layers by dragging the layer in the
    Layers panel to a new position. For more information, see Organizing layers.

    To change the stacking order of a selected object or group within a layer:
    a.. Choose Modify > Arrange > Bring to Front or Send to Back to move the
    object or group to the top or bottom of the stacking order.
    b.. Choose Modify > Arrange > Bring Forward or Send Backward to move the
    object or group up or down one position in the stacking order.

    thicker button type thing with a title relating to the text above? If so
