Details

Recently sometimes i saw the problem that i cannot select menu items in SeaMonkey anymore. This problem normally starts occouring randomly while using SeaMonkey. I clicked on any menu with the left mouse button, held the mouse button and then moved the cursor downwords. Below a certain point menu items would not switch into the selected state anymore, also releasing the mouse button there did not do anyhing. After a bit of testing it turned out that i can select menu items which are displayed over other chrome UI, but as soon as i want to select a menu item which is displayed over content (so normal website display area) this does not work anymore. I cannot reproduce this reliable, but i've seen this bug several times now. For example in the View menu i can select menu items up to "Text Zoom (100%)", but not below.
Suggestions how to provide more debug info are welcome.

Yep, I saw this last night on s branch build.  I don't know what the steps are to reproduce it, because it happens at random.  I'll concentrate on it the next time it occurs.
