Clicking that button just does nothing on Nightly. Works with the same profile on release.
It works fine here on OS X and 53.0a1 (2016-12-14). Does Nightly on a clean profile work?
WFM on Windows 10 as well.
Tested on Mac OS X 10.10 with FF Nighlty 53.0a1(2016-12-18) and I can't reproduce it.
I can reproduce on Linux.

Same here on Linux with nightly builds. In addition, I am unable to add search engines.

Tracking 53+ for this issue - ni on Drew since it appears he fixed the bug that is being referenced as causing the regression.

Bug 1113747 added the class check so that clicks on the menu button wouldn't get eaten.  Before that bug, all the mousedown handler did was the preventDefault().  The problem is the settings button and add-engine button don't have that class, so the handler returns early and skips the preventDefault(), which as the code comment indicates breaks clicks on Linux.

So instead, check specifically for the add-engine menu button.

... and the early return.

Hi Andrei,
could you help verify if this issue is fixed as expected on a latest Nightly build? Thanks!
Flags: needinfo?(andrei.vaida)
As of 54.0a1 (2017-02-01) it is not fixed in the French version of Nightly. I will try again later today to see if 54.0a1 (2017-02-02) fixes it.
Forwarding this to Brindusa, who's taking care of Nightly requests.
