Geolocation request popup not appearing

Im using the cordova geolocation plugin and upon installing the app for the first time the request popup never appears, until that is I minimise the app (by pressing the home button), but it seems not to save the choice. If I double tap the home button and immediately return to my app the location popup appears correctly “infront” of the app, I am then able to allow and the app works as intended.

Is there a method of ensuring that the geolocation popup actually appears infront of the app?
