User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0
Build ID: 20140830210550

Steps to reproduce:

I installed Instantbird (latest nightly but this bug is there since a long time, I just didn't found the moment to file this bug).
Then I open Ib, I right click in any window anywhere or I open one of the menu un the menubar (like File / Tools or Help)


Actual results:

Instantbird crash. The only messages in console are the following :

(process:2867): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed
[2867] ###!!! ABORT: X_CreatePixmap: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation); 4 requests ago: file /home/buildbot/buildslave/linux64/build/mozilla/toolkit/xre/nsX11ErrorHandler.cpp, line 157

Expected results:

Menu should have opened :).

I can confirm this happens on KDE. Completely breaks IB.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true

Intermittently, the menu actually appears, but is transparent (see screenshot).

This may be some initialization issue: I once got as far as getting IB to display menus properly (not sure why or how). It was then stable.

This is an issue with the default gtk engine KDE uses for gtk apps, gtk2-engines-oxygen. As a workaround, switching the gtk theme may work (in KDE system settings). 

What definitely works is to create a symlink calld "komodo" or "seamonkey" (or one of the other XUL apps KDE is aware of) which links to the "instantbird" executable, and starting Instantbird via this symlink.

Thanks, finaly solved an bug very waited for so mutch time ;-)
I had experimented and now works well, and the themes for KDE and GTK are mostly uniform, unless had very different themes ;-)

Nothing we can really do here for now, and it has a workaround, so reducing to 1.6-wanted.
