Steps to reproduce:

* Make sure you have a white background, e.g. on the "New Tab" page or on Google
* Open any context-menu, e.g. right-click on a website or open one of the bookmark folders from the bookmark toolbar.

Actual results:

The menu was rendered without any border, so one cannot even tell where the menu ends and the page content begins. I will attach a screenshot demonstrating this.

Expected results:

There should be a border.

This started happening with the update to Firefox 46, i.e., GTK3. Other GTK3 applications have a border just fine; I tried Liferea. I also tried a different GTK3 theme, with the same result -- no border in Firefox' menus.

Summary: Context menus have no border → Context menus have no border (Linux, Gtk3)
I have a border with GTK 3.16 and Adwaita.

Which GTK3 version is installed, and which themes have you seen demonstrate this problem?
This is with GTK3 3.18.9 on Debian testing. I tried the Adwaita and HighContrast themes. (For some reason, Xfwm crashes when I change the theme, so I didn't really want to try further ones^^).
Confirmed with black themed Gnome/GTK 3.20 on Archlinux, so having a context menu without any borders around, in black.
This is the case for menus from menubar too.

Screenshot can be joined if needed.

Same with OpenSUSE 13.2 and default desktop theme on KDE4 (SeaMonkey, own trunk build).

Same with debian stable (jessie) and Firefox 50.
Cannot reproduce with firefox 52 and debian stretch with clearlooks-phenix theme.
Indeed with upstream Firefox 52 on Debian testing, the context menu now looks just fine.
