Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.9a5pre) Gecko/20070521 Minefield/3.0a5pre Steps to reproduce: 1. While Firefox has focus, click the clock menu (top of screen, near the right). Result: The menu appears for a few milliseconds and then disappears. Expected: The menu should stay up until I dismiss it or use an item in it. I use the clock menu whenever I want to know the current date, so this bug is pretty annoying.
Seems to work some times but not others. I can click 5 times in a row and maybe once it will open properly.
Is the regression range on this recent? It might be because of our EventMonitor stuff in bug 265136, but that's a very recent change.
I couldn't see the issue in a nightly from 20th.
Sorry the bug this is probably a regression from is bug 339945. The old # was the attachment id.
I can reproduce this in a test app. I will file a radar report.

Mark, I tried what you suggested using the Carbon Activate/Deactivate events to only have the handler installed while we are inactive, and it helped the problem some but didn't fix it entirely. This whole thing doesn't make a whole lot of sense, you'd think someone else would have found this bug already :(
I see this in Camino also, FWIW.
The browser window doesn't properly regain focus when the (status item) menus are dismissed normally, either, at least in Camino's case.
Summary: Can't use OS menus (e.g. clock) while Firefox has focus → Can't use OS menus (e.g. clock) while Firefox/Camino/etc. has focus

I markedly do not see this in any version of Camino I've used - are we talking about nightlies? I recently switched from Camino to Minefield as my general purpose browser, so for me, this is new functionality that's never occurred in some years of Camino use.
Yes, we are talking about nightlies. Minefield is simply the name for the Firefox trunk (nightlies), IIRC.
This actually works correctly (or, almost completely correctly), on 10.3.9, with the exception that a second click on a menu title/icon (to close a dropped menu) opens it again.
Fixed by patch for bug 387164, which just landed on trunk.

This fixes Camino for me, so marking Verified.
