noticed that that the submenus draw right on top of the parent menu, obscuring much of the parent menu. in 4.x, such submenus would be shifted either to the left or right of the parent menu (depending on where the browser win is located on the screen). here's a sample recipe of what i'm seeing: 1. move the mozilla browser window so that it's flush with the right side of the screen. (eg, have it opened at www.mozilla.org) 2. go to Bookmarks (from main menubar) > Sample SmartFind queries: you'll notice that this submenu obscures 5 lines worth of the parent menu (only the beginning of the parent's items are visible). 3. for an even more extreme example, check out the following subemenu: Bookmarks> Sample SmartFind queries> Find: Bookmark names starting with 'A' > AAA URLs with no redirection. in this case there are no borders btwn the submenus (difficult to determine which items are in which menu) and the submenus often flicker... occurs on both windows and linux (2000010508 comm.). not an issue for mac since native menubar is used.
Anyone could take this bug, all the positioning code is in nsMenuPopupFrame::SyncViewWithFrame
Peter, can we give this to someone less doomed?

sure, removing help wanted from status whiteboard & reassigning to sdagley as p4 for m16. BTW, this should not be 'major' severity, which is supposed to indicate major loss of function. This should be either minor or trivial.
Is this a dup of #21155?
