I have MacOS Ventura 13.4 on a MacBook Pro and am running Safari 16.5. My Safari is "always on top" and I have to minimize it to see other programs rather than it falling behind when other windows are active. I cannot find any setting to stop this behavior and I do not have any program that I know of that would cause this (like Afloat). Any one know what to do?

Venice, Italy.
Same problem here with MacOS 13.4.1(c) and Safari 16.5.2 on MacStudio M2 Max.
This problem appeared when i upgraded my 2015 iMac from BigSur to Monterey. Then I migrated the data (with migration assistant) to the new MacStudio M2 with Ventura 13.4.1 and the problem is there too.
Quick work around is to focus to the Finder and after this open the other application. Very annoying.
