I wouldn't use JRE 1.6 update 26, but try update 21, 32 bits.

Almost all complex programs, including operating systems, have memory leaks or consume more memory the longer they run. This is caused by bugs or by design.

You can limit jD's memory by changing jD's startup parameter. Instead of -Xmx512m you can try a lower value like -Xmx256m.

Great workaround. The "always on top" bug has been really annoying and restarting JD is mid-stream is not really an option. Hopefully the developers will be able to fix this at some point.

Now I have Win 7 - it's not happening that often, but still does from time to time. Usually whwn I'm for example in my browser window and captcha appears. I think that captcha somehow forces it on top.

Sometimes. Not sure how to reproduce it, not sure if it's helpful. Some people may relate though.

Partial solution - click on X in top right corner of your JD window, then click on systray to summon it again.

Of course, restart helps, but in current times of endless downloads, one cannot "stop" the flow of kilobytes so easily.



It's happening much lesser and remedies are much more helpful (better % of success) than in XP.

Default jdownloader stays on top

Greetings
OS: XP+SP3
Jd: 0.9.581 (don't know which build)
This is a minor problem, but it annoys me.
After a recent update jdownloader stays on top. i.e. if I click on a windows behind it, it doesn't come forward and leave jdownloader behind.
Hope my problem is known to someone.
Couldn't find anywhere in jdownloader settings how to change it.
Otherwise it works like a devil.
thanks

at devs: the problem i noticed with my workaround (click "add URL" in the linkgrabber and then "cancel") is that jdownloader stops monitoring the clipboard for new links. the window isn't on top anymore, okay but another important funtionality is lost in the process..
so restarting JD may be the only solution atm. hth

Cool

There will probably be a new stable version this year and I hope that version won't have this bug.

Thanks for the tip. Ver. 0.9.581 can still get stuck being "always on top". This is under Win XP Pro 32-bit.

Hello. New update after few years of having this bug (still), but this time, I have a workaround.

When it does that, it often involves captcha window causing it (I click on other window, captcha pop-ups, I click somewhere else and JD window stays on top). Not sure if it's true reason, but it looks like it.

WORKAROUND: I click on X (top right corner), I double click on systray icon to bring the window back. Then I click on minimize button (top right corner) and then on JD entry in taskbar. Voilá, JD window isn't stuck "on top" anymore.

If I do just one of these steps (x or minimizing), it will still stay on top.


Weird, huh ? But works for me every time. Win 7 - 64x, latest JD.

As mentioned a few months ago, I still get this problem of JD stuck on top. I now think it starts when I cancel a captcha popup. The workaround here (click on Add URLs then cancel) still works.
