Filemaker window does not come to front after switching back from another application when there's an open FM dialog

Post

When there's an open dialog box in Filemaker, the FM window does not come to the front after switching back from another application.  Only the dialog box of the FM will come back to the front. For example, I'm in FM, and come to a step that a dialog box open.  Then I switch to Word.  Switch back to FM by clicking on the FM button at the bottom of the window.  Now I have the FM dialog box lays on top of the Word Window.  The FM window only comes back after closing the dialog box.  Is there a way to make the FM window come to the front with the dialog box lays on top of the FM window, just like how other applications, such as Word or Excel, would do?

Our users run filemaker 9 or 11, on Window XP.
