You're lucky it moves at all! The most common is for there to be gunk in the window switch. If you feel adventurous, it is easily possible to disassemble the switch and clean it up. Gently pry the surrounding trim up that holds the drivers master switches. There are spring clips at the front and rear that hold it in. You will see that it contains 4 identical switches. Gently pry out the drivers switch and unplug it from the harness. When you have the switch by itself, you will see the rocker is held on and pivots on two small pins on either side. Read carefully: When you do the following, be somewhere you can find small flying parts...not in the yard! With a small screwdriver, ever so gently pry the top hinge off of the pivot pin. When you do this, a tiny spring can fly off so go slowly! You'll probably see a mass of crud down in the guts of the switch and 2 silver BB's.Clean it all out w/ a solvent such as brake cleaner spray, replace the 2 BB's and spring and clip the top of the swtch back onto the pivots.
If this is more than you want to do, you can either buy a new switch or swap w/ a back window switch that works.

Yes the door's rubber window guide becomes dry and needs to be lubricated with a special silicone lubricant, go to Napa and ask for this silicone lube then apply it to the grooves located around the inner perimiter of the door window frame, sometimes it is neccessary to remove the door panel to access the lower window guides, if you remove the door panel becareful when removing clips along the lower part of panel you can damage the panel using a screw driver the sell a tool for this it looks like a screwdriver with a Y shape at the end. If this doesn't remidy the problem you more than likely have a worn out window motor that needs replacement.

SOURCE: My window will not roll
If your switch is bad, there will be no function up or down, nor will your hear the faint click at the motor in the door.
If the motor is bad it usually rolls down, because it takes less effort, but will struggle or die out when going up.
If the regulator is bad, it'll usually affect the gear teeth on the motor, causing the window not to hold its position resulting in the window dropping down on its own.
