If it was strong ("pure" or 28%) ammonium hydroxide, and the sections were not completely drained after placing them in the slides, that could be the cause.

Hi all,
  I looked in archives to see if I could find any info on this but did not.
Remember, we are having a problem with some of the sections floating off during
   If paraffin blocks are faced and then placed  in ammonium hydroxide
before cutting the H&E, would this cause the sections to float off if the
unstained sections that are cut in addition to the H&E's are also
produced in this manner?
