Open Bug 1344620 Opened 3 years ago Updated Last year
Menus (right-click, hamburger, top) do not open
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0 Build ID: 20170125094131 Steps to reproduce: I'm on Firefox 51 on Debian Jessie. This is reproducible both on upstream firefox (from getfirefox.com) and on the Debian-packaged one. 1. Create a fresh profile. 2. Go to example.com (or any other site) 3. Try to open right-click menus, the menus at the top, and the hamburger menu Actual results: Often these menus (right-click menus, the menus at the top, and the hamburger menu) will not open. It then sometimes resumes working. Expected results: The menus should open normally each time.
When it's not working, right-clicking on text switches back-and-forth between a caret (I icon) and the mouse pointer.
Also, it even happens on a completely fresh system user (so it's own ~/.mozilla).
any chance it's opened but somehow not visible there? there were following issues: * menu is opened but transparent * menu is opened in different monitor so, can you check the following things? 1. can you click the menu item (supposing it's transparent but is there) ? 2. do you have multiple monitor? if so, do you see the menu in different one than firefox is opened?
Comment on attachment 8843838 [details] upstream_trace.txt >(firefox:15118): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion 'object->ref_count > 0' failed These are disturbing messages. Did these messages appear and/or the menu problems happen when using Firefox versions < 51? Running with G_DEBUG=fatal-criticals will cause the program to crash on the first such message, which may generate a stack trace with some clues.
Using iceweasel 45.8.0esr-1~deb8u1 on debian jessie 8.7, Graphics card is Intel. Some additional data points: It seems that the window manager does play some role. Using ratpoison I've never got this problem. Using dwm it happens quite frequently. Interestingly quiting dwm after the drop-down menus stop working and starting ratpoison (or twm btw) does not make the menus work again. Opening a new Iceweasel/Firefox window does not help either, the problem is still there. I do have two monitors (laptop panel and an external monitor), but the laptop panel is disabled. I shortly enabled the laptop panel to see if the menus open there => nope.
