If you open the Bookmarks menu in the Personal Toolbar, the opening menu is
always on top. You can open a shell window and this will show up between the
basic Navigator window and the Bookmarks menu. Weird, isn't it?

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mozilla.
2. Fiddle with it for a while.
3. Open Boomarks menu.
4. Open any non-Mozilla windows.

Actual Results:  
The Bookmarks menu is on top of all other windows.

Expected Results:  
The Bookmarks menu should be only on top of the Navigator window.

KDE 3.0.3/3.0.4 here. The bookmark menu dismiss each time i click on anything
else. And nothing raise on mouseover as long as the menu is activated.

I weren't able to reproduce now. Perhaps the browser has to run a couple of hours. 

A similar (not yet reported bug) in the latests builds was, that after a couple
of hours run time, the user.js settings were disabled.
user_pref("ui.key.accelKey", 18);
user_pref("ui.key.menuAccessKey", 0);
user_pref("ui.key.menuAccessKeyFocuses", false);

Instead of opening a new tab for browsing, Alt-T expanded the Tools menu. This
only occured after running the computer and Mozilla several hours.

Resolving as WFM since the original problem has gone away.

Please reopen if that problem reappears and you have some definite steps to 
reproduce it.

As for the other issues in comment #5 - please include them in seperate bug

Is this the usual procedure when a bug does only occur from time to time?
Any WFM-report may lead to a resolved status? What is the use of the
"Reproducible: Sometimes" category for?
