From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; m17) Gecko/20000807
BuildID:    2000080712

After a few minutes (five to six), regardless of which sites are visited,
mozilla will cease to create dropdown menus correctly. When a menu is clicked,
it will go down but dissapear when you try to select something in it. Both left
and right click menus experience this error both on web pages and the browser
interface itself.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
To reproduce this error on Windows 2000 SP1, open Mozilla as normal and go to a
Web page which uses drop-down menus such as Bugzilla. After the first few menu
items are selected on a form, none will function as they should.

Actual Results:  When these steps are performed, clicking a dropdown menu on the
page or even Mozilla itself (such as Bookmarks) will open the menu, but it will
dissapear when you move your mouse to select something on the list.

Expected Results:  Mozilla should have kept the dropdown menu open long enough
for the user to select an option/link. Instead, it dissapears.

My computer is a 375MHz Intel Celeron running Windows 2000 Service Pack 1 and
high 128-bit encryption. Netscape 4.75 and Internet Explorer 5.5 are also installed.

er. sorry, should have read this a bit closer (thought he meant mozilla's menus, 
not html dropdowns).

okay, I really have no idea which menus this is referring to :) it says 'left 
and right click menus' but it also says 'Web pages which uses drop-down menus 
such as bugzila' I'm confused..

I assume the reporter is talking about context menus and chrome popups.  seems
fine to me on 082408 mozilla build on win2K

I really need clarification as to whether it happens in both the web pages and 
in the chrome or one or the other. If it does happen in both than it is a widget 
toolkit issue.

I think that the part about web pages refers to the right-click context menus.  
The build is 2-1/2 weeks old, though.  I can't repro this on a build from a 
couple of days ago.
