Developer notes

#mwe-popups-settings is position fixed, as is its parent container #mwe-popups-overlay
This seems redundant
Making #mwe-popups-settings position relative seems to solve the problem
This can easily be replicated in browser stack Windows 7/IE11 and there are also developer tools for it.

QA steps

This should be tested on the beta cluster (
This can easily be replicated in browser stack Windows 7/IE11
We'll want to confirm that the settings dialog is centered when opened.
Check Firefox and Chrome and other versions of Internet Explorer/Edge to confirm the positioning is consistent.
