When the downthemall extension is the only open window the menubar is unresponsive, short keys are also broken.

you have to close the dta-manager window to get functionality back. this sucks if you are in the middle downloading a large unresumable file and want to continue browsing the web as dta will stop the download if you close the dta manager window!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open dta manager, close other firefox windows
2. attempt to use the firefox menubar items
3. or short keys, i.e. cmd-n for a new window.
Actual Results:  
either no menubar items are visible, or if they are blank menu pull-downs are displayed.

shortcut keys do nothing. cmd-n will not open a new window.

Expected Results:  
firefox menubar items should be displayed and be functional while dta manager is open. open new window should open a new browser window. cmd-n should open a new window, etc.

should mention that this may be related to bug <a href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=239218">239218</a>.

i'm seeing this happen on 1.5.0.5 -> the latest 2.0 branch nightlies.
Version: unspecified → 2.0 Branch
Bugs in extensions are normally marked INVALID and the reporter is asked to contact the extension author for a fix. 

It could be a Firefox bug, but bug 239218 was fixed before 1.5 was released and is likely to be unrelated, unless it has regressed. Do you get the same behaviour with dialogs created by Firefox itself ?

This is an extension bug, comment #2 is exactly right, you should attempt to contact the extension author.
