User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0

If I have the menu button (ie the button left of the tabs), when pressing F10, the menu bar shows up, but the menu button doesn't disappears. and as soon as I press on the menu button or I release the mouse from a menu from the menu bar, the menu bar disappears.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Unselect the menu bar (hide it)
2. Press F10
Actual Results:  
Menu bar appears.. and menu button stays

Expected Results:  
Either nothing happens... or the menu button is replaced by the menu bar.
Works for me in the latest build. Can you reproduce in Safe Mode (http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe Mode)?

In safe mode, if I hide the menu bar, the same behavior is reproducible. 

Another easy way to reproduce it is, once the menu bar has been hidden and F10 pressed, you can just click on the menu bar on an area that's not activable (ie, not on a menu), and it just goes away.
This is another issue which should be filed separately. Please keep this bug for the not closing Firefox button menu and file a new one for the issue mentioned in comment 2.

I have tried with the latest Minefield build on Linux and for me the Firefox button always closes when I press F10. Can you please test in a fresh profile?

I think you misunderstand what I was saying in the original report, the issue in comment 2 is the bug I'm reporting.

1. hide menu bar (by unchecking view->toolbars->menu bar).. this will show the "single-button menu" instead
2. press F10
3. the menu bar appears, but the "single button menu" is still therre
4. if you try to use either the "single buton menu" or the menu bar, the menu bar disappears again
Oliver, as what you have stated in comment 0 is completely different from comment 2. That also applies to the summary of this bug. 

Updating summary and confirming issue also with a Windows build.

It's more general than your summary (so I updated it).. but doing any menu interaction will hide it.

Maybe I misunderstand what F10 is supposed to do? But having both the menu button and the menu bar seems strange (as they are the same thing organised differently). Or is F10 just supposed to show the menu bar temporarily for a single interaction ?

How do I get the Menu back?
