How to stop Custom CSS/js files from overriding JIRA Built in styles/js files

I am building a plugin and am trying to create a "fancy" button(Modal) via bootstrap.  When I include the styles/scripts via:


The styles are applied, but it breaks some functionality in Jira.  The one major thing is that when I go to click the "edit" button on the view issue screen, it just sits and acts like it is loading data, but it will sit there for eternity.  Another thing is this happens: 



Here is my resource code in atlassian-plugin.xml


<web-resource key="customStyles">

<resource type="download" name="bootstrap.min.css" location="bootstrap.min.css"/>
<resource type="download" name="jquery.min.js" location="jquery.min.js"/>
<resource type="download" name="bootstrap.min.js" location="bootstrap.min.js"/>

Any ideas?
