When hovering over something in the Menu bar, a description window appears. When you switch to another program with Command+Alt, the description window remains and cannot be removed without returning to Firefox and moving the mouse first.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hold mouse over something in the Menu Bar until the description window appears.
2. Click Command+Alt and switch to another program that takes up most of the screen
3. You will see the description window over your new application, it cannot be removed unless you return to Firefox.
Actual Results:  
When I went to the new application, the description window did not disappear until I switched back to Firefox and moved the mouse.

Expected Results:  
When switching out of Firefox or not having Firefox as the active application, all description windows and other pop-ups should close immediately.

Shuki: Are you using Spaces to switch programs? I just tried to repro your bug and I did not see the tooltip in another program.

Marcia: No, I'm not using spaces, I'm just hitting Command+Tab which cycles through open applications. I just messed with it again and it seems that if you hit command first and hold it the window disappears, but if you quickly hit command+tab then the problem persists. It's very weird.
Is this still visible with Firefox 3.5.7 or 3.6RC2?

If you can still see this problem with the latest release of Firefox feel free to reopen.
