When click on any manu firefoxjust  displays something like a big panel form side to side of de screen and doesn't show any letters so i'm unable to see which menu i'm accesing to.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on any menu (file, edit, ...)
Actual Results:  
Instead of the menu content, firefox shows a flat item which doesn't show nothing and this item is normal size in top/down shape and screen-wide size.

Expected Results:  
Firefox must show the menu in the normal form and shape

Default theme, fresh installation, windows vista with windows blinds as a theme manager and using windowblinds and Leo(Vista) as a OS theme.

1) Does this problem go away if you disable the Windows Blinds theme?  There are some known issues with how menus are handled in Vista with respect to third-party system themes.

2) Could you please post a link to the WB theme that you are using?

I can't reproduce your problem.  I downloaded the latest version of Windows Blinds (which apparently includes the Leo (Vista) theme).  And everything looks fine.

The only thing that I could think of that would cause a huge menu like that is if attempts to get the menu metrics are failing, which would cause us to use bogus values.  But I don't see that problem with the latest WB version and with the Leo theme that came installed with it...

You don't have any extensions installed, do you?

No, i haven't. It also occurs when click the No-Script button "Options" or when i right click on any web page. I have the same configuration this morning running well with firefox 2
Do you get the same problem if you run firefox in the Firefox safemode ?

I'm using 6.1, build *97* x86 Vista Edition.  Could you try that?  Aside from WB, I really don't see many other possibilities for the cause of this...

I'm going to mark this as blocking bug 436779 so that this remains on my radar.  Right now, there is no error checking for the retrieval of menu metrics in nsNativeThemeWin.cpp, so although this was directly a problem with WB, I think things could've been handled better on our end, too.
