Apps. opening behind the finder - Mac Applications & Software

I have noticed of late that whenever I launch an application it doesn't always mount in the front most window, ie. I am in the finder in column view and I launch Entourage it loads behind the finder and I have to click on Entourage's window which is thankfully slightly larger than the finders and easy to get at. Is this this a common occurance or just my setup. John Holt...

    Default Apps. opening behind the finder

    I have noticed of late that whenever I launch an application it doesn't
    always mount in the front most window, ie. I am in the finder in column view
    and I launch Entourage it loads behind the finder and I have to click on
    Entourage's window which is thankfully slightly larger than the finders and
    easy to get at.
    Is this this a common occurance or just my setup.

    Haven't seen it. How are you starting applications? I assume you are
    clinking on the icon in column view? Is it possible that you are
    clicking on the desktop after starting the app, perhaps by
    triple-clicking the icon or something?

    MacJanitor also hides in a similar fashion; I have it set to launch on
    bootup, and it appears temporarily, then disappears until I click on
    its icon in the Dock.

    Thoth's log does the same: it's invisible until you click on the
    Desktop.
