I have just updated to 18.04, and cannot right-click and get the little menu to select "Always on top" for Firefox/Chrome, but I can do so for the terminal, pdfs, etc. (along with other things like Minimize, Maximize, Move, etc.) It appears to be a known issue (https://discourse.ubuntubudgie.org/t/18-04-always-on-top-right-click-menu-issues/580), but does not, as far as I can see, have a known fix...
Thoughts appreciated.

I am on 20.04, and have only Firefox installed: I could experiment only with that, and not with Chrome.

I could reproduce your issue: when I right-click anywhere on Firefox's window or on the top window decoration, the "Always on top" option is missing, along with other common window-manager related options.

Yet, they can be accessed; the only condition is that the window needs to be in non-maximized state.

When one moves the mouse cursor along the edges of a (not maximized) window, the cursor changes to indicate that a click-drag along that edge would start resizing the window.

When the cursor is in this resizing mode, a right-click reveals the original window-manager context menu, along with the "Always on top" option, which even works as intended.


The size of the drag-to-resize area is configurable:

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter draggable-border-width 20

This will give you a 20px range along the window edges to expose the desired resizing mode.
