User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.0.4) Gecko/2008102920 Firefox/3.0.4

As an OSX Power User, I use a variety of tools to speed my workflow.  One such tool is "On My Command" that allows me to create context menu items relevant to my workflow.  (http://www.abracode.com/free/cmworkshop/)

Apparently Firefox is not using the standard OSX Menu Manager rendering the tool non-functional within Firefox.  Developer comment is available here:

http://abracode.com/pipermail/omc_abracode.com/2008-May/000329.html

Setting up duplicate context menus within Firefox (something I have not attempted and I not sure if the power of OMC is available) should not be required as it creates work in maintaining consistency between the environments.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup OMC on Mac
2. Right-click to access context menu within Firefox
Actual Results:  
OMC command options are not available for selection

Expected Results:  
OMC menu items should be available for selection to perform the configured command on the selected object

May be some relationship with  Bug 429824 -  User-defined shortcuts don't work

I updated the summary to indicate this is a generic problem with context menu plugins and not specific to this one application.
