***Overview Description: 
  No context menus fire on any personal toolbar items. This behavior is a fairly recent regression
since they only recently started to work correctly.

***Steps to Reproduce: 
1) Launch a window. Right-click, ctrl-click, or click+hold as appropriate on any toolbar bookmark
or folder.

***Actual Results: 

	nada. The items(even if it's just a single bookmark) do make the 'depressed' movement
as if there were buttons and were 'thunked', that might be a clue, cuz there's no reason for a 
singleton bookmark or even a folder to do that. Only the Home/Bookmark buttons should do

***Expected Results: 

	pretty little context menu

***Build Date & Platform Bug Found: 

	All platfroms with the 2001050104 builds

***Additional Information:

This bug is a significant change in behavior since at least the 04/26 builds, maybe even
more recently. cc pink just in case some of his recent context related changes did this,
and cc hewitt cuz this could just as well be b/c of the newnewnewmodern or whatever we're
calling it :-)

I'm think I'm seeing something related to this bug when using context menus to
open up a link in a new window.

This is with build #2001050304 on win2k

To reproduce:
1. Go to
2. Right click any link
3. If you get a context menu, click somewhere else and try the same thing again
4. At least after this second time, there will be no context menu

To fix this, right click somewhere else on the page, get the context menu, now
left click anywhere to get rid of the context menu, now go back to any link and
right click.  You should now see a context menu.  Now click somewhere else and
try right clicking again on a link.  Again, no context menu.

Is that the same bug as this or should another bug be filed?

I can see both behaviours on Win98 2001050304:

1) no context menu for personal toolbar
2) no context menu on a page after one has been called and dismissed already for
that page.

Also after trying to call up a context menu and failing, the next click in the
browser window content area (incl. scrollbar) is lost.
