Normally, when you click on a menu (on windows at least), the menu drops down
and stays down.  You can move the mouse around with impunity and the menu stays
down.  If you move the mouse over a different menu than that drops down instead.
 However, if you move the mouse over a greyed-out menu the menu just disappears.
 Moving the mouse back over the menu that was down before now does nothing, the
"menu down" state has been lost.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the compose email window.
2. Click on the Edit menu.
3. Move mouse over the other menus, including the greyed-out insert menu

Actual Results:  
Other menus drop down until the mouse moves over the greyed-out insert menu.

Expected Results:  
Other menus should drop down even if the mouse passes over the greyed-out menu.
 The greyed-out menu should probably have no effect at all and not even close
the menu currently down.

I have entered this under MailNews since this is the only place I have come
across the greyed-out menus, but it maybe is a more general bug.

Moving to XP Toolkit/Widgets: Menus, which requires a move to Browser even
though I only see this in MailNews.
