I'm working on some educational content that involves pop-up windows for expanded information. It will be very helpful for users to keep two pop-ups (or even more) on top of the main page, so they can compare the information.

Here's my challenge. When a second pop-up gets created and grabs focus, the already open pop-up loses focus -- and goes right to the bottom of the window stack, behind the main page. The user can go to their taskbar and bring it back to visibility, but they may not even realize it is still open.

So, is there a way to keep the first pop-up from diving to the bottom of the window stack when a second pop-up is opened?

Just floating this message -- I could really use some help, but on this one I know I may be out of luck.

You could use scripting to make both windows always on top. I imagine you could also get more complex about it and keep both windows on top relative to the parent window. I've never tried it but it should be possible.
