    Default How to make extension popup sticky

    Hi everyone,

    is it possible to make the popup window of a extension visible even when it ost focus ? Because now when I click the web page I'm browsing the popup disappears, but I need it to remain visible because I need the information it dispays whie I'm browsing.

    I know that in debug mode the popup remains visibe even if you click somewhere else, so would it be possible to get the same thing ?

    Thank you,
    TheDev

    I had already been there but thanx anyway. I made some research in chrome's source code and there's something about popups called "close-on-focus-lost behaviour" which pretty much says it all, if a popup loses focus then it's closed so I guess there nothing I can do about it, it was made by design.

    But I have a small hope left because when I debugg an extension the popup remains on top no matter what (open new tab, switch tabs, click outside the popup) so I wonder how to recreate that behaviour outside of the debug mode ?

    Anyone ?

    Thnak you guys!
