    I noticed that when I put any of my windows up, it seems to stop and come back down. Eventually it was stay up. I took a video of this https://goo.gl/photos/n5NQJhNyZ7XeDVwq6

    It seems to have been going on for a while now and I wonder if anyone else experiences this?

    You need to recalibrate the safety auto-reverse. If I recall correctly, this is the trick:

    Run the window down by holding the button in the down/open position and continue to hold for like 5-10 seconds. Then release, and hold it in the close/up position until the window fully closes, then hold it for like 5-10 seconds. Let go. Test and see if it works.

    BTW I notice that you have tinted the windows. That can affect the friction/force the window motors need to operate.

    A small squirt of silicon spary into the window guide channels in the door also helps
