Mine does the same thing, but is limited to the driver's door only; passenger door closes easily with the window glass fully raised. Also, the hinges are all tight and the door doesn't "sag" at all when first opened. With the window slightly cracked, the door closes & latches easily.
The heat/AC damper position has no effect, in fact the passenger door could be open, and the same condition exists on the driver's side.
What I have found,though, is that after closing the driver's door from the outside, with the glass fully raised, it is possible to push in on the rear/top edge of the glass, and it will "pop" in behind the rubber gasket along the roof edge.
I wouldn't worry too much about the door card flying off due to hard closing from the outside, but I CAN tell you.......a wife trying to slam it closed a few times by pulling on the armrest "MAY" pull the card apart. On the bright side.....I have a good start on accessing the glass to xheck alignment.
