Go into the mail folderpane, hover over one of the folders until its tooltip appears. Now context-click. expected: - context menu for that folder should appear and stay on the screen actual: - context menu appears and disappears. Looks like a bad interaction with the tooltip. I see this on mac, assuming putterman sees this on win32.
for m17, considering for beta2
ok, this is caused by the fact that they are in the same popupsetframe and only one popup in a set can be active at a time. In the course of displaying the context menu, nsPopupSetFrame::MarkAsGenerated() unsets the |menugenerated| attribute on the tooltip and causes it to go bye-bye. I need to talk to hyatt about this, cc'ing him.
i have a fix for this...basically moving the folder tooltip into its own popupset. I'll check it in when the tree opens.
thanks for finding that. That's good to know. The fix is fine since as far as I know there was no reason to have it in the same popupset other than I didn't create another one. For now on I'll keep tooltips separated from context menus.
well, i was thinking about this...while there's no reason why they should be both visible at the same time, the fact that the context menu vanishes is bad bad bad....maybe i'll look at this a little more and see if i can't fix the original problem so they can be in the same popupset.
there are several bugs here. the first is that on macos, the activate/deactivate event sequence is confused so that the contextmenu gets hidden as the tooltip disappears. on win32, the context menu displays, but as soon as you try to mouse into it, it vanishes. the workaround is to use different popupsets, but this should be made to work eventually.
I actually never intended for it to be possible to have multiple popups in a popup showing simultaneously. If we want to support it, cool, but I assumed that popupsets would be for mutually exclusive popups.
should have read "multiple popups in a popupset showing..."
this doesn't need to be beta2.
mass-moving all bugs to m21 that are not dofood+, or nsbeta2+
nominate for nsbeta3. External user reported this so it may be a common occurrence. For PDT team, effect on the user: appears that the context for mail is not working since the context menu disappears right away after it is invoked.

Mike, did you ever check in the fix to mail? If not, perhaps I should just file a bug on myself to remove them from the same popupset so that this isn't as high a priority for you?
i'm pretty sure i checked in the fix a while ago to mail, but we still have the problem that items in the same popupset clobber each other.
workaround is good enough for shipping, pushing out.
WORKSFORME. I don't see this bug on win32 build 2000100520.
hyatt fixed this this week with his popup retooling.
