If I bring up a context menu, and make a selection, I get the same context menu again if a tooltip would fire after the selection. With the testcase, right-click right-click "link", then select "save link target as". Timing is important. You need to wait long enough to trigger the tooltip, but must click before the tooltip shows up. After clicking, the save as dialog comes up, but another context menu also comes up with the tooltip. This seemed to regress between linux trunk 2005022305 and 2005022405, indicating bug 125386.
I think we really want to get this fixed for 1.8...
I investigated this a while ago. The tooltip dismissal goes through some popupset stuff and opens another popup (the menu). I was unable to figure out why that happens...
What's the risk/reward analysis here? Is this a bug that is likely to show up in real-world websites?
It can happen anywhere there's a tooltip. I actually noticed it while poking around the address book.
With current trunk builds, I'm finding this bug a lot harder to reproduce, so perhaps not as important as previously thought.
Andrew, I forgot the content of our discussion. Can you reproduce this at all now?
yes. I've hit it a couple times in the past week.
With the testcase in this bug?
I have also seen it with the testcase, but I was referring to hitting the bug in the app GUI.
