Clicking on a folder name in the bookmark toolbar does not always open or close
the corresponding menu.  The problem seems to be related to the double click

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a bookmark toolbar with a least 2 folders
2. Open the menu of the first folder
3. Click on the second folder name. This should close the first menu
4. Immediately click a second time to open the second menu. 

If you are faster than the 'Double click Delay' then nothing happens. 
You may have to click a third time or even a fourth time to finally 
open the menu. I find this anoying because it gives the impression that
Firebird is not responsive. 

This behavior is easier to reproduce with a high 'Double-click Delay'.

My system characteristics are 
  Linux 2.5.67 - Debian Unstable - Gnome 2.2 - XFree86 4.3 - Sawfish

*** Bug 211745 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
WFM on win2k builds, even with mouse delay slowed way down.  Can this be
reproduced on Mozilla trunk builds?

I just downloaded the latest nighties for Mozilla and FireBird (2003070408)
and the problem appears to be gone so I consider it resolved. I will check
Firebird 0.7 as soon as it is released.  

For the record, I was also able to reproduce this on Mozilla 1.3.1 (Linux).

It may not be solved after all! The Debian version of Firebird 
uses gtk2 while the nightlies are still built with the outdated 
I cannot consider the problem solved unless I can verify it on 
a recent build using gtk2.

Stephane, try a nightly build from the timeframe that was failing (i.e. 0630)
and see if the problem exists in that build.  If so, the bug is indeed fixed.

On the other hand, if that is not the case and you cannot replicate this with
older nightly builds, please provide as much information about the build
options/environment for the failing builds.

I could not reproduce it with the nightly 0630-17.

I don't have a lot more information about this build. This is
the current official Debian package mozilla-firebird_0.6-8_i386.deb

you can get more information about this package at

My opinion is still that this related to gtk2.

PS: dont bother to ask more info during the next 2 weeks! I am out :-)

I just installed the latest Debian package for Mozilla 1.4 (not firebird) 
and the problem is still there:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030704 Debian/1.4-1

This is also a gtk2 build!
I reopen.

Odd little bug...

Some time in the intervening 3.5 years, we seem to have started opening toolbar menus on hover, so it's not possible to click on the second to close the first, what with the way the first closes and the second opens as so as you come near it.
