After visiting google.co.uk and news.bbc.co.uk, I can open the bookmark menu, but any attempt to move the mouse down to select a bookmark causes the bookmark menu to close itself. This is happening randomly, but once it starts closing the bookmark menu, it will always keep doing this until Firefox 4 RC is closed and restarted. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start Firefox 4 RC. 2. Browse a couple of web sites. 3. Attempt to select an existing bookmark from the bookmark menu. Actual Results: This problem only happens sometimes, and I am yet to find a sequence of steps that will cause it to happen every time, but it does happen within a few minutes of using Firefox 4 RC on Ubuntu. Expected Results: I have Firefox 3.6 installed and bookmarks always display and can be selected from the bookmark menu, expect Firefox 4 RC to do the same.
Any add-on that interacts with menus?
This is a freshly installed Firefox 4 RC without any add-ons.
maybe you have a focus-follows-mouse or similar setting/tweak, usually those cause issues with menus
I have not tweaked my OS since it was installed, purely installed Firefox and used it as is out of the box.
I see the same problem after upgrading from 3.5.9 to 6 on Opensolaris. Bookmarks suddenly do either not open at all or close immediately when trying to select. This is a serious regression, as it happens quite often, and can only be reset by restarting firefox.
Reporters -> Can you still reproduce in Firefox 9.0.1? Any luck with better steps to reproduce (STR)?

Please reopen: This still happens on Firefox 12, after a while browsing, or even after a while doing nothing, no specific steps to reproduce, it just happens in about 60 % of all runs. Platform here is Opensolaris 134b, Gnome 2.28.2, Gtk 1.2.10. This is a really annoying bug with high impact, as you have to restart firefox. about buildconfig: Build platform target i386-pc-solaris2.11 Build tools Compiler Version Compiler flags /ws/onnv-tools-prc/SUNWspro/sunstudio12.2/bin/cc Sun C 5.11 SunOS_i386 2010/08/13 -I/usr/X11/include -D__FUNC__=__func__ -xlibmieee -xstrconst -xbuiltin=%all -D__FUNCTION__=__func__ -mt -DNDEBUG -DTRIMMED -xO4 /ws/onnv-tools-prc/SUNWspro/sunstudio12.2/bin/CC Sun C++ 5.11 SunOS_i386 2010/08/13 -xlibmil -xlibmopt -lCrun -lCstd -features=tmplrefstatic,no%except -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=500 -D__EXTENSIONS__ -template=no%extdef -xlibmieee -xbuiltin=%all -features=tmplife,tmplrefstatic,extensions,no%except -norunpath -D__FUNCTION__=__func__ -template=no%extdef -xannotate=no -mt -DNDEBUG -DTRIMMED -xO4 Configure arguments --enable-application=browser --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib --mandir=/usr/share/man --enable-official-branding --enable-updater --enable-debug-symbols=no --enable-update-packaging --enable-update-channel=release --disable-tests --enable-jemalloc --enable-dtrace --enable-xinerama --disable-crashreporter --enable-ipc
The same happens also with thunderbird 12, same config as in comment #8 .
(In reply to beanladen from comment #9) > The same happens also with thunderbird 12, same config as in comment #8 . thunderbird doesn't have a bookmarks menu, afaict.
This bug applies to ALL menus, not only the bookmark entries of firefox.
