Details

(Keywords: ux-consistency, Whiteboard: [Australis:P4])

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0 (latest Nightly 32.0a1 (2014-05-04))

Steps to reproduce:
1. Do not select any text
2. Open PanelUI menu
3. Click any of the grayed out Edit controls (Cut/Copy/Paste)

Expected results:
Nothing happens, the menu stays open.

Actual results:
The menu closes without any action performed.

Additional info:
The user may think some text gets copied, even though nothing really happens. To compare with an earlier version of Firefox and the App Menu button: it stays open as if the user hasn't clicked, which indicates that something is wrong (no text is selected, so there is nothing to copy/no text field is focused or there's no data in clipboard).

Can reproduce this bug on 29.0 and 32.0a1.
