The bookmark menu next to the "Home" and "Mozilla.org" buttons, not off the menu bar with view, search, go, etc, has strange display problems if you pass your mouse cursor over it. What seems to be happening is that the selected bookmark folder highlight is larger height wise than it should be by a few pixels, and it also bumps the other areas around a bit perhaps adding a few pixels height in other bookmark folders it has already passed by with this graphical bug. I'm using Win32 build 1999122308.
Confirmed on NT and Linux. The highlighted item on the Personal Toolbar Bookmark Menu is a bit taller than the unhighlighted items, causing a nifty-yet-disconcerting rippling effect when the mouse pointer is run up and down the menu. Tested with: 1999-12-25-08-M13 nightly binary on Windows NT 4.0sp3 1999-12-25-08-M13 nightly binary on Redhat Linux 6.1 (gnome+enlight) I'm sure I've seen this reported before, possibly as an XP Toolkit/Widgets or XPMenus bug.
Chris, looks like some menu fun for you ...
as expected this bug is XP and still exists on all platforms as of 2000011 builds.
this has nothing to do with menus, but css i bet. reassigning to trudelle for better triage.
hey pink, this is the bug I've been looking for for a while. There are a bunch of bugs floating around about the BM(on the Ptoolbar) menu jittering and other wierd behavior. This sounded like one of the most likely causes. which bugs? well how about bug 20518, bug 24340, bug 21262, and bug 21477 for starters!
Summary: Bookmark menu display error due to selected folder gfx height problem → Bookmarks on personal toolbar display error due to selected folder gfx height problem
cc'ing slamm as i'm trying to get some of these similar problems all under one roof.

This is not limited to the bookmarks menu, it happens the first time that a submenu of any personal toolbar menu is displayed. What seems to be happening is that the spacing (leading?) below the parent menu item is increased when the submenu is first displayed, and retained on subsequent display of the parent menu. reassigning to hyatt, who says he wants to keep this one.
BULK MOVE: Changing component from XP Menus to XP Toolkit/Widgets: Menus. XP Menus component will be deleted.
Component: XPMenus → XP Toolkit/Widgets: Menus
This is a dup of 20518. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 20518 ***

Oops, wrong. These were different.

The template was building menus with bad attributes on them. Shame. I fixed it and now have a navigator.xul that behaves wonderfully with these menus.
Whiteboard: Fix in hand. Needs review.
