Rightclicking on a link often, though not always, pops up two menus. Already did so in Mozilla 0.9.7 and probably earlier. One menu where it should and one more identical menu a little higher and more to the left. The second incorrectly displayed menu disappears almost immediately in 0.9.8 I couldn't find this major bug in bugzilla, which either means it only happens in some configurations or the earlier reports need additional keywords. build 2002 02 04 06, Windows 95, clean installation.
In what may be related, may be not: I visited the page mentioned above and goto the drop down 'Review Index' near the bottom of the page, leftclick on it the menu appears as it shoud be. If you rightclick on an item the menu always pops up pretty far away from where you want it, if you rightclick once more on another item the menu pops up very briefly only at yet another weird place.
Created attachment 72193 [details] Screen shot confirming duplicate contexual menus Using Mozilla 0.9.8 Build ID 2002020811 on a Win98 PC the duplicate right-click contextual menu is easier to replicate with Mozilla having two or more Navigator tabs open (but has and can be replicated with a single Navigator tab). Open Navigator Tabs: 1.Bugzilla Helper - http://www.mozilla.org/quality/help/bugzilla-helper.html 2.Chemical Markup Language (CML) - http://www.xml-cml.org/ 3.Personal Home Page - (A couple of Absolute Positioned DIV's) The duplicate seems to only appear only if the Navigator tab has been inactive (out of focus) for a short period of time, after right clicking the document select one of the contextual menu items. (This also includes moving to another Mozilla Browser session altogether). A.Select inactive Navigator tab. B.Right click somewhere in the body of the document to initiate contextual menu. C.Select either: (You may need to do this a couple of times) i.Reload (This is the greater of the three I've found) ii.Reload Frame iii.View Source I'm new to this if I'm not suppose to step on someone else's bug in this manner please let me know thought it was better than resubmitting it. firstname.lastname@example.org
See this thing also with 2002040403 on Win95. Comment #2 is a good description. But I think the problem is minor, cause the 2nd pop menu is only shortly flashing.
I just want to confirm the bug. I'm running on Win95 OSR2b, and Mozilla 0.9.9, build 2002031104. I was previously using 0.9.6 and the problem did not exist there. Also, it seems to have some relation to Bug 96645, which is about the COPY LINK ADDRESS in the context menu being unreliable. It seems that it is more unreliable when I've seen the double menu.
Is this the bug that the tooltip moves the menu? Hover over the above bug link and you see a tooltip. Now right-click the link, move the mouse out and back over the link until the tooltip reappears. Repeat and watch the menu move :-)
No, but it will be interesting to play with it.
This happens to me, too, on WinNT and with all(?) builds up to and including 2002-05-01-branch. Why isn't this bug NEW yet? I just reported new bug 142097, which should probably be marked as a dupe to this bug but only if this bug gets NEW status. I agree with the comment that this is not a serious bug -- I haven't had any *problem* because of it -- but it is disconcerting, makes Mozilla seem unpolished, and (at least in the past) caused orphaned menu "chunks" to remain on screen.
*** Bug 142097 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Confirming based on dup.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
These problems do not appear on Win 2K Moz 1.1 Alpha
can anyone repro this with new builds?
Hmmm, I've no problems at the moment with it. So it looks that the bug is gone for me.
using build 2002-06-17 (trunk) on WinNT, I'm unable to reproduce it but, then again, I never was able to do it on command. I think the problem was caused by right-click dragging from the link to anywhere else in the window. I haven't seen the problem since I last reported it (5-3-02) so it may be fixed. It would sure feel better, though, if someone could identify a checkin that could have affected this...
marking wfm. Please reopen if you can still see this on 1.0 or later
