Is it a bug or intended behavior? Reproducible: Always
after_pointer is not currently implemented with respect to the mouse pointer. It currently offsets 21 pixels vertically from the anchor.
This has been documented in several places for a long while. Should the documents be corrected or this bug be fixed? https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XUL/menupopup#a-popup.position https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XUL/Attribute/popup.position https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XUL/PopupGuide/Positioning#The_position_attribute https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XUL_Tutorial/Popup_Menus#Popup_Alignment
It seems that "at_pointer" is not implemented as well. I've updated the docs linking to this bug.
