Steps to reproduce:

It would be nice if firefox used popovers for the 'show bookmarks', 'open menu' and 'display downloads' toolbar items.
https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/GtkPopover.html
Component: Untriaged → Widget: Gtk
Product: Firefox → Core
The toolbar menu items already use "up arrows" or whatever they are called which is basically similar to native gtk+ popovers. Perhaps theme them like gtk+ popovers?

This is what epiphany (a native gtk+ browser) looks like. Notice the downloads popover.
