popup menus on my extension's toolbar buttons do not popup where expected (bottom left of the button, instead they show at cursor position) although in DOM Inspector they show as position=start. 

Same works as expected in Thunderbird 2. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install QuickFolders https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3254
2. drag a folder to the new toolbar. This will be styled as a "Tab" (it is a button).
3. right-click on the new Tab. 
Actual Results:  
A popup menu will show up on Cursor Position. 

Expected Results:  
The popup menu should show up below the button, left-aligned (after_start). In DOM Inspector, the relevant menupopup.position reads as after_start. The expected behavior works in TB2, which is indicative of a change in the Gecko Code base.

Since it is a minor bug I would be grateful for a workaround as well.
blake ideas ?

And if you do not, please close bug report by changing resolution to worksforme
