Expected results:

I think this bug is related to bug 624169: can we really prevent the arrow panel to be offscreen? IMO, we can't respect the requested position and always be in-screen. For a text field, we have some space to move the panel a bit and still have the arrow pointing to the element but for a radio or checkbox button, this seems hard...

And I would prefer to have the panel partially offscreen than misplaced.

If you want offscreen popups, you would need to skip or change the call to nsMenuPopupFrame::GetConstraintRect (but only if mInContentShell is false).
