Topic: Mac dialogs and Netscape plugin

I have a plugin for Acrobat that creates toolbar buttons in the Netscape PDF plugin. When these buttons are clicked, they need to launch a dialog box for the user to make certain choices. I can bring the dialog to the front by making Acrobat the active process for input, or by calling the Apple Event function for user interaction. The problem I am having is that the mouse clicks on the dialog do not seem to line up with the location where the dialog is being drawn. The clicks seem to be about 10 pixels below and a few hundred to the right of the location where the dialog is drawn. In addition, when some of my custom controls are redrawn, they sometimes appear on the PDF in Netscape rather than on my dialog. The dialogs and controls work fine when launched from a toolbar in Acrobat, so this seems like something associated with having to bring the application to the foreground. When I click in the title bar and drag the dialog, the outline appears in the wrong place (shifted the same as the clicks) but the dialog redraws where the outline is dragged to. After this, the clicks are still registered in the incorrect place.
Any ideas as to what I need to set to get this to work correctly.
