Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.12; rv:53.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/53.0
Build ID: 20170413192749

Steps to reproduce:

I slipped in my history menu and went to one site, which triggers the software security device, when I wanted to go to another site.

I went back to the history menu before it appeared, and tried to select the other site.


Actual results:

Firefox froze. I had to leave Firefox and force-quit.

I suspect that the software security device appeared behind the open history drop-down menu.

Firefox freezes *whenever* the Software Security Device menu appears. It usually allows users to click it closed, but if it appears behind a menu or behind a window, it doesn't allow that.

I don't know if the same bug can appear with the full-window bookmarks menu.


Expected results:

Firefox should not have frozen. Or the Software Security Device dialogue should have appeared in front of the menu, so it would be reachable. Or the menu should have closed.
