have been seeing this for a week or so --not sure if it's expected behavior on linux. non-issue on mac and winNT, afaik. unless it also occurs on dual/tri-headed monitor systems --kinda like the "inverse" of bug 19347, heh. ;-) 1. bring up context menu with a single click of the right-mouse button. don't select anything, just release the button so that the popup remains on the screen. 2. move the mouse (still not holding down any buttons) to another virtual desktop. observe that the context menu follows you around, ie, it remains in the same position on the screen, but it doesn't go away when you move over to another desktop. notes ----- easily dismissed by returning to the original desktop (from which it was brought up) and clicking anywhwere in the browser window. context menu remains active while disembodied: ie, selecting Back will dismiss it as well as take you to the previous webpage.
Kinda similar to bug 26509: menus and select boxes used to stay on top when you Alt-Tabbed away from Mozilla. Similar thing still happens with context menus: right click to activate a contex menu, Alt-Tab to switch windows, context menu will stay on top.

pav: what is different in the case of virtual desktop switching? why would it be any different than switching windows? if it's not then i don't know what to do here. i'll let this one hang out for a bit, but it's a very good candidate for futuring.

this bug hasn't been touched since forever. does the problem still persist?
hm, i cannot repro this with today's build on linux rh8.0 --then again, my window mgr (metacity) is setup such that i need to use a keyboard shortcut to switch virtual desktops... i've another machine (rh7.2) where moving the mouse switches at the edge, will check that later on.
no longer an issue on linux rh7.2 (sawfish) --if the context menu is up, i cannot move to another desktop moving the mouse. marking w4m (invalid?).
