1. Move the mouse over the menu bar, so that a menu pad highlights. Hold down ALT. Without moving the mouse, click on the menu bar. The menu won't open. 2. Now double-click on the highlight. The highlight may go away. You may have to double-click several times to get the effect. 3. Now click on the menu bar. The menu opens. 4. Now press TAB so that you switch to another application. The menu doesn't close. Expected behaviour: The menu opens as long as the mouse button is held down.
Yep, this is inconsisant with at least Windows behaviour. Don't know about Max&Linux, though, and since Menus are XP... Confirming bug...

This mostly works now, although I don't like the way that mousing over an already active menu bar drops the new menu. I know Windows 95 doesn't do this.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.1) Gecko/20040707 If I try point 1 (Move the mouse over the menu bar, so that a menu pad highlights. Hold down ALT. Without moving the mouse, click on the menu bar.), the menu still won't open. Point 2-3-4 seem to work
