The drop-down should be right underneath the menulist.

This regressed on 4 July 2007 so it is probably a regression from Bug 279703.

It's even worse with the latest FireFox. Not only is there still a gap between the menulist and the drop-down, but there's a gap between where the mouse pointer is, and the item that gets highlighted. I don't know how to capture this in a screenshot, but if you try the live repro, you would need to move the mouse about an inch above the drop-down in order to highlight the items way below. Clicking the mouse at this point just closes the drop-down without selecting the highlighted item (I guess because the click is actually outside the drop-down).

There is a decent chance this got fixed by bug 1130400 is anyone wants to test.
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0

I have tested this issue on the latest Firefox release (46.0.1, Build ID: 20160502172042),latest Nightly(49.0a1, Build ID: 20160518030234) and on the latest Developer Edition (48.0a2, Build ID: 20160518004015) with e10s disabled. I've opened the attachment 341962 [details] and I could not reproduce it. I've clicked on the menulist and the dropdown appeared underneath it. 
However, I was able to reproduce it on Nightly and Aurora with e10s enabled, here, when I clicked on the menulist, the dropdown didn't appeared anywhere.
In order to test this bug I have used the Remote XUL Manager 1.3.1 add-on.
