Have you considered moving all of the content from these windows into a 
single window, hiding and showing groups rather than closing and opening 

This would resolve the window hilite issue, and may lend itself to a 
very contemporary look.  iMovie and a great many other apps have 
migrated from what had traditionally been multi-window layouts to single 
windows with multiple panes.
