User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1 A reproducable sequence of mouseclicks causes menupopup (sub menu) items in the context menu of the browser to stop functioning. An extension is required to reproduce this problem as there are no Context Menu menupopup items in the default istallation of Firefox that i could find. A Simple extension with no code, just the xul overlay for the context menu is available at http://www.yellowgorilla.net/files/submenutest.php. This can be used to test this bug. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install the extension from http://www.yellowgorilla.net/files/submenutest.php 2. Click anywhere on the browser window of firefox with the right mouse button 3. Select the item "Sub Menu Test" from the context menu so it displays the sub menu 4. While the sub menu is still open, Click on the item in the main part of the context menu that says "Click me while sub menu is open" 5. Repeat steps 2 & 3. The menupopup submenu does not appear the second time Actual Results: The menupopup submenu does not appear the second time as expected. There is no code in this extension that controls the appearance of the context menu so apperance of menuitems is controlled by the firefox code. Expected Results: the menupopop submenu should be displayed for the user to select a menu item from. This problem does not appear to be a problem with the items in the main firefox menu. I have only observed it on the context menu of the browser. This bug was found whilst testing an exension I am developing http://www.yellowgorilla.net/imagezoom/imagezoom.php so to test, I wrote a simple extension to add the required item to the context menu and nothing else, then tested it on a fresh install of firefox with no other extensions installed.
I am also able to reproduce this bug on: Mozilla Mozilla 1.7 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616 Thunderbird version 0.7.1 (20040626)

I can reproduce it too. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040817 Firefox/0.9.1+
I too have experienced the crashing (numerous times) with this bug but am not sure the exact steps needed to reproduce the crash.

I cannot reproduce this bug with a current trunk Firefox build. Could you try to reproduce it with a build from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/ ? btw, Firefox does have a submenu in the context menu by default -- the Frame menu, only visible on pages with frames. I used it and Flashgot's submenu when trying to reproduce. raising severity to critical because of crash keyword.
Severity: normal → critical
This bug seems to have gone away in the latest 1.8 gecko version. I do not experience this problem anymore with firefox 1.5b2
Neither me (comment 7), nor original reporter (comment 8) can reproduce the bug using Firefox 1.5 builds. Resolving the bug as WFM.
