Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Get a latest nighly build of Firefox 2. Get the GoogleBar extension 3. Go to the leftmost GoogleBar toolbar icon - GoogleBar options 4. Open the attached menu and hover over one of the menu items Alternatively, look at any other menu with a 'tooltip' attribute. With Firefox there was another bug - menu items without tooltips showed tooltips of their parents. To solve this I've added tooltips to all my menuitems (FoxyTunes Firefox extension). Now all the menus misbehave.
This bug seems to be the Firefox version of bug 254224, duplicate?
(In reply to comment #1) > This bug seems to be the Firefox version of bug 254224, duplicate? They seem to be closely related, as the whole behavior of the tooltips in the above version seems buggy/jumpy. I can try and provide a more technical description of that. Meantime, working with a branch version without these problems...
I noticed the same on a firefox-trunk-nightly from Sep-08 the tooltip appears right under the point of the mouse pointer. It probably grabs the focus and the menu item below loses focus and becomes inactive? On another installation Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040831 Firefox/0.9.1+ the tooltips appear at the lower end of the mouse cursor. So they do not interfere with the focus of the active element
