Hmm sounds like like the rubber stripping around the top is going bad

You said you have to lower the window for it to act normal sealing wise? This sounds familiar, my buddies was doing the same rolling up too high, his window separated from the slider inside the door... Can't hurt to pull the door panel off and have a look before you buy anything

Looks to me like its out of alignment. If you take the foot panel off you can get to the track. My rear track does get out of place and needs adjusting over time. I'd start with that.
