I tried on both firefox from stable ppa and firefox-trunk from daily build 4.2a1pre (2011-04-10) on a fresh Ubuntu 10.10 install.

No extensions are enabled. Default theme.

That's a Linux only issue and doesn't happen on Windows. Sounds similar to bug 616752 but is probably not the same.

Raphael, could you check older beta releases of Firefox 4 and check if it has been introduced at a later time or if it is existent since the beginning of the Firefox button? Thanks.

I installed firefox 4.0 and firefox-trunk from ppa repositories. I can't find older betas there.
Is there a place to find deb packages for older betas ?
I'll do my best to help; already set up a clean VM for the tests.
Sorry, that's what I forgot to mention. You can find older betas here:

I check on betas 5,6,7 and 8 : the button first appeared on beta 8 and the bug was here.
So it is present from the beginning of Firefox button.
Thanks Raphael for the investigation. Lets mark it as blocking the initial implementation bug 585370.

Well that seems like a lame regression identification method.

We usually try to track it down to the check-in, not to a beta.
I'm fairly sure that it is broken with the 2011-11-21 build. But you are right, lets test this build.

Raphael, can you please check this build:

I wonder if this could be one of the effects of the loadOverlay bug (see bug 640158).

Yep. The right side hover styling is still broken on KDE as well. Nobody ever got around to finish fixing things up for the Firefox button on Linux. We barely got the button added for Linux at all. :/

The Firefox button is going away in the near future to be replaced with a completely new cross-platform menu button so this will be "fixed" at some point soon-ish.

Congratulations Mozilla UI devs! You've successfully ignored an ugly easily reproducible UI bug long enough so as to make it obsolete in the next major UI rewrite.

The old Firefox button was retired in bug 863753 and replaced with a new widget-based menu button added with Australis. I just retested this in a new profile in Aurora and then Nightly. Still easily reproducible in Aurora but no issue like this in Nightly. Closing this as WFM (not FIXED).
