Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050528 Firefox/1.0+ When clicking on the File menu, the dropdown menu is off to the right slightly. I.e. the left of the menu, doesn't line up with the left of the File button. I think it is about 5 pixels off. This doesn't occur in 1.0.4 at least for me. All of the other menus line up correctly.

Yes it also happens in safe mode, with a brand new profile too. I filed the bug after 4 people on mozillaZine confirmed it.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050530 Firefox/1.0+ ID:2005053004 I see this issue too. Note, you have to have the browser window maximized for this to be seen. Possibley related to bug 296004
See this too now. When did this regress?
Steve: It's not quite that it has to be maximised, but thanks for stating that because I can now see when this occurs. Un-maximise the window. and then move it off of the left of the screen until the Edit menu has the first letter chopped off. Now click the Edit menu; the menu appears to the right. Same for all of the other menus. If you get it close enough, you can only offset the menu by 1 or 2 pixels instead of 5.
Summary: File menu appears slightly to the right of where it should appear → Menus appear slightly to the right when close to the left of the screen
Seems to be always 5 pixels for me. This regressed quite some time ago. I have a 20050513 trunk build of Thunderbird that exhibits the same problem.

OK, I feel rather stupid now. Window wasn't maximised when testing in 1.0.4, and indeed as comment 9 states, it occurs there too! Removing keyword regression. In that case, I stil think this bug should be fixed. The File menu just looks odd when it is offset. I think the menus should act as they do in Internet Explorer when near or off the edge of the screen. Line up with the button if close to the edge of the screen (like the rest of the buttons do when fully on-screen.) Menus should stick to the left of the screen when menu-button is partially off-screen (like Internet Explorer.)

Not sure why this is marked as NEW, it appears to be an obvious dupe? *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 176767 ***
