Steps to reproduce:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:19.0) Gecko/19.0 Thunderbird/19.0a1 (01 November 2012 build)

When you open the appmenu, and then choose one of the menu items, the action is completed, and the menu stays open.

Actual results:

I selected the menu item Options... and the options dialog opened.  When I closed the options dialog, the appmenu opened again.

When I selected the New Message menu item, the compose window opened, but the appmenu remained open.

Expected results:

The appmenu should not reopen after dismissing the options dialog or after choosing any other menu item.
This might be by design?

This also affected in 17beta and maybe affected 17esr.

Just reproduced this on Windows 7. On OSX and Ubuntu, I notice that after I click, the menu respawns before hiding - so I think it's a race.


1) On a Windows machine, click on the AppMenu, and choose "Options"
2) When the Options dialog appears, click "Cancel" to close it.

What happens?

The AppMenu respawns.

What's expected?

The AppMenu should not respawn.

Hm - this seems to happen on each of our split menus - so I see it on Print, Message Filters, Find, and New Message.
I think I've traced this to our appmenu-vertical binding here:

Since the menupopup exists *within* the button, I think the click handler is called both when we first open the menu, and (it seems) any time we click on a splitmenu immediately beneath the menupopup.

Philipp - I do believe you introduced this binding. Any ideas what we can do about this?
