On a page with a form I open a selection menu (HTML:<select>) and do a right
click on it. After this I cannot enter any text in the inputs anymore. Even the
location bar doesn't work anymore.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to a page with a form with selection-items
2.open such a selection menu
3.do a right click on it

Actual Results:  
The cursor didn't appear anymore. Entering text into inputs or the location bar
was impossible after these steps.

Expected Results:  
The cursor and the location bar should have worked and entering text should have
been possible.

More detailed steps to reproduce:
1. On this page
2. Left-click one of the drop-down selects (such as "Hardware").
3. Right-click on one of the options - a context menu appears.
4. Left-click on that option. The context menu disappears and the list collapses.
5. Notice that you cannot type in any of the text fields on this page, or in the
address bar (but you can type in the "additional comments" textarea).

The only way out of it I found was switching to a different application and then

seems it's fixed in 1.0.1
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.

The bug which removes context menus on form elements is bug 404536 , which is for Milestone 3.0 and I can reproduce the current bug with 3.5.3, but can't with 3.7a1pre.
Someone should confirm if this bug is fixed by bug 404536.
