When posing questions like this, a screenshot showing layers is always

Best guess. Is this for an animation?

If it is, then when exporting as an animated gif, choose the options

One frame per layer

Use disposal entered above for all frames.

Then when the animation plays in your browser or player you get one frame at a
time as inset in screenshot.
