Why different attribute table pop up when multiple layer is overlap?

The most recent layer being enable on the layer control will be on top of the overlap layer. This issue usually occur on polygon features when multiple layer is enable concurrently. If the selected feature pop up is showing different layer content, disable the desired layer and enable it back. This will make the selected layer on top of the other layer.
