If you right click on a link then right click on another link (before the page
loads) the right click menu will jump.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on a link
2. Before the page loads, right-click on another link
3. Let the page load
4. Click either on a item on the menu, or somewhere on the page
Actual Results:  
The menu jumps up for a second then disappears.

Expected Results:  
The toolbar should just disappear.

This happens on all themes i've tested.
Actually, the menu should just disappear when the page transitions....

I must disagree.  Its nice to have the menu stay there, because sometimes you
click on a link to quickly and realise there is another link you would like to
open in another tab/window.

I don't think this is a bug either.  I'm quite happy with things the way they
are with this.

How is this a dupe of bug 189474?  That bug is about when the entire page jumps
with a scrollmouse, not the right click menu.

The menu should stay there, but it shouldn't jump up like it does.
