If you hit F12 to bring up Dashboard while a Firefox popup list or context menu is active, the Firefox popup list or context menu will stay active and even obscure any Dashboard widgets whose area intersects with its area. Also, the popup list does not grey out like everything else on the screen does. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click on something that brings up a popup menu. For example, click on the isosceles triangle (popup-list trigger) next to the left history arrow. Or bring up the list of fonts next to "Default Font:" in Preferences. 2. Hit F12 to bring up Dashboard. 3. You should see the popup list on TOP of all the Dashboard stuff. Actual Results: Popup list appears on top of all the Dashboard stuff, obscuring any Dashboard widgets whose area intersects the popup list's area. Also, the popup list isn't greyed out like everything else is when Dashboard comes up. Expected Results: Popup list should be greyed out and should remain behind Dashboard widgets. Or, popup list should be dismissed before Dashboard comes up. (The latter is what iTunes and Safari does. You can get a popup list in iTunes easily by going to Party Shuffle mode, then looking at the bottom. You can get a context menu in iTunes by doing control-click on a song in the list.) For extra added fun, bring up a context menu from within Firefox, hit F12 to bring up Dashboard, then click on the "(+)" thingy at the bottom left of the screen to see the list of widgets. When you do this, the context menu will move upwards along with everything else, but the mouse pointer is tracked as if the context menu hasn't moved.
This occurs in Thunderbird too so it's probably a core issue. I am running Mac OS X 10.4 on an Intel processor.
