Example: Start the editor. Click on a color-picker button on the toolbar. The popup window comes up in the wrong location. It should anchor the upper left corner under the mouse point.
I'm not sure if this is the same bug, but in the mailnews threadpane, the context menu shows up too far down and too far right from the place where I clicked.
It is the same bug if you are using a <popup> element, not a <menupopup>, which seems to position OK.
yes, it's a popup with "context" in the tree.
I see the same problem when I have a titled button with a popup (not a context window). The popup shows up in the middle of my screen instead of being anchored to the title button i've declared the popup in. Here's what my title button xul looks like: <box id="FromBox" class="headerBox" align="horizontal" hide="true"> <html:div class="headerdisplayname">&fromField.label;</html:div> <titledbutton class="emailDisplayButton" id="FromValue" value="foo" popup="emailAddressPopup" /> </box>

Taking menu/popup bugs.
Pink just took ownership of several menu-related bugs, most were already QAassigned to sairuh, I'm just making sure that they all are now :-)

Is bug 16592 (as REOPENED) the same issue as this bug? 1. start mozilla 2. click right mouse button on background to bring up the context menu 3. click right mouse button outside it to pop it up at another position 4. select a menu item in it with the RIGHT mouse button In step four, a *third* context menu pops up in a location that seems to be computed somehow - it doesn't appear to pop up quite randomly, but it is always offset in both X and Y. Nevermind that it shouldn't appear at all (the right click on the menu should either do nothing or select the item), the code that positions the third context menu may be the same code as is causing the problem reported here. Also, testing bug 24901, "[ssl] There are no security warnings.", warnings were seen on Linux, but in unpredictable locations, sometimes apparently offscreen. Not sure whether to file this as a new bug.

Putting on PDT+ radar for beta1. As long as it can be off screen.

This has nothing to do with bug 24901, as these are popups and not alerts. I don't know why that is even mentioned in this bug. Also the "right mouse" problems in the same comment are totally unrelated to this bug. Since this was pdt+ only because it was thought the popup might appear offscreen (which i'm pretty sure it can't, the offscreen handling popup code is pretty bulletproof in other situations), i'm removing the pdt+ for reclassification.
editor stuff? this goes to sujay. :-)
