Default Windows hop when wet?

Has anyone else noticed that when the power windows are wet and you roll them down they hop or jump a little bit like they're sticking to the dew wipes? My Ranger has done it since brand new and I was wondering if I'm the only one with this problem.

Mine doesn't do it but I've owned other cars that did though.

My 2010 drivers side does it . Ford gave me some bull that it was a dirty window . Since day one , last year . Annoys the hell out of me . found a new dealer and have to bring it in for a check so I'll have them look at it . Have not had time to drop it off ...

Interesting to see I am not the only one here too !
