The ribbon attempts to place itself above all other content, but it's possible that if your template designer did something crazy - the ribbon may not be on top.
Also, the module is required for ALL display methods EXCEPT the cookie blocker - so if you unpublish the module to use the ribbon - it's a mistake. The module is REQUIRED for all of the display methods.
