When I'm designing a web application that I want to be responsive, I frequently use the units vh and vw (which stand for viewport height and viewport width).

The second one does a production build and then runs that, and sometimes with the minification and concatenation things gets messed up (usually it's that dang css). Anyway, this post is about how I fixed the z-index issue that is related to this.
