User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080418 Ubuntu/7.10 (gutsy) Firefox/
Build Identifier: Linux i686, Gecko Ubuntu 8.04 (hardy) Firefox 3 Beta 5 (couldn't submit this with 8.04 ... FF 3 crashed)

When using Firefox 3 beta 5 with Domino Web Access Release 6.5.6 Build 471 (i.e., Lotus Notes Domino Web app), the forward, move, and follow up menus do not work. Once the mouse hovers over the menu, each menu expands to display the menu items. However, once the user mouses (i.e., hovers) over the menu items, the menu collapses. If the user is quick enough to click on a menu item before the premature collapse of the menu, the menu item is still not selected and thus that functionality does not work. The exact same web app (i.e., Domino Web) works flawlessly in Firefox 2.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open browser, navigate to a Domino Web Access site
2. Ensure that the popup blocker allows the Domino Web Access site
3. Select (single click) on an item in either your in box or another folder
4. Move the mouse over the move menu
5. Attempt to click on one of the menu items (e.g., "Move To Folder ...")

The menu will collapse before you've had a chance to select the menu - although even if you click fast enough, the menu item action is never invoked.
Actual Results:  
A successful invocation of said action (e.g., click on the "Move To Folder ..." menu item from the "Move" menu) should bring up a popup dialog that allows the user to choose which folder to copy the selected email. Again, this works flawlessly in Firefox 2.

Expected Results:  
Said action (e.g., click on the "Move To Folder ..." menu item from the "Move" menu) should bring up a popup dialog that allows the user to choose which folder to copy the selected email.

This works flawlessly in Firefox 2 so something has been broken between FF 2 and FF 3.

For those of us that use Domino Web Access, this is a complete show stopper since it does not allow us to use Firefox 3 to perform email functions. If not fixed, user is faced with downgrading to Firefox 2 or choosing another web browser such as IE or Opera.

3.6.10 doesn't work either. This still needs to be fixed.

From Firefox 4 - 6 in how many weeks? Anyway, did that, still not working and even worse in fact since the email list doesn't work. 

Do what you want with this, I'm using Firefox less and less now that IE9 and Chrome load sites like this much better.
