Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090628 Minefield/3.6a1pre (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090628 Minefield/3.6a1pre (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) ID:20090628153845

As a result of https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=404766 we can now right-click on items in the bookmarks menu without the menu closing.  However, when right-clicking on a second item in the bookmarks menu the newly selected item is not highlighted as expected.  Because of this behavior it's hard to tell which item has been selected.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click Bookmarks
2. Navigate to a folder that contains several bookmarks
3. Right-click on a bookmark in the folder
4. Right-click a second bookmark 
5. Observe that the second bookmark is not highlighted
Actual Results:  
The first bookmark selected stays highlighted

Expected Results:  
Right-click on a second item in an already displayed context menu, should activate (highlight) that item (essentially, the same as a left-click on the menu item).

Confirmed using latest trunk nightly on Vista.

Ever confirmed: true
Hardware: All → x86
Is this just on trunk?  I'm either missing something or not getting the right behavior on the 3.6 branch (a right click on a menu or context menu command executes the command for me, which is the expected behavior).
I wasn't able to reproduce, but either way this sounds like an actual real bug, as opposed to a polish bug.

Alex,

I can reproduce on 3.5 and Minefield/3.6a1pre.  The issue is specifically related to right-clicking on a second bookmark after right-clicking on one does not highlight that second bookmark.  It's hard to tell what you've clicked on at times when the first bookmark you selected (right-clicked) is highlighted and not the second one.

The expected behavior here is likely to differ between platforms.  Does somebody know how native menus behave on different platforms in the cases relevant to this bug?

setting uiwanted to look up that information for all platforms.

On Mac OS X, the expected behaviour is that right-clicks on context menu items will activate them, and Firefox follows this behaviour.

Screenshot of related bug

I can reproduce this. Additionaly, if I open the menu again, it still displays the old highlight. If done "correctly" you can highlight ALL items of a menu. For this, open the bookmarks menu, go to a folder that has a separator above. Right-click on the first item in the folder, right click on the second, then move the mouse to the right and back to the bookmarks menu icon. Reopen the bookmarks menu, move down to the folder you just worked on. Instead of going to the submenu, move the mouse up to the separator, move it outside and enter the menu from the other side. Now right click the next item without touching (moving over) the already highlighted item. Repeat everything a few times. See screenshot for the result :)

This appears to still be an issue with: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0b7pre) Gecko/20100922 Firefox/4.0b7pre ID:20100922111040

Any chance on resolution?

I am on Windows XP, and using Firefox 4 and having the same problem.

Here is the screenshot: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7456129/rightclick.jpg

In this first, I right clicked on "The Official ---" site, menu appeared.
Then, I right clicked on "Techbits" site
You will see that the previous site selected remained highlighted, rather the new site "techbits" must be highlighted on right clicking on that.

Please reply to this BUG it exists in firefox aurora also.
Right-clicks on context menu items should activate them.
Moving uiwanted for now.
