So your rear windows work fine with the switches, but the front ones only go down and up when you raise or lower your top and hold the button accordingly? Since the rear switches work, that would seem to eliminate a ground wire problem. It sounds like the problem must be in the switch itself. I'd probably remove the switch from the door, find the front window wires, and jump them together to make sure the front windows work from there. Assuming they do, it's time for a new switch assembly.

I took out the centre console switch box and found it a) full of muck b) that the metal contacts on the most used windows, the fronts, had worn to the point they were making poor contact. It's worth reversing the contacts to bring the unused ones into play (dont worry this does not reverse the action!) or swapping a rear window switch for the front. This of course only transfers the problem but at least your most used window will work
