Change - Context Menu not being cleared when selecting "Permissions" in "Settings" Charm


(Firefox for Metro Graveyard :: Input, defect)

Windows 8.1
Not set

(Reporter: kjozwiak, Unassigned)


If you have a context menu opened (text, links, images) and you go into the "Settings" charm, selecting "Permissions" will not clear the context menu. This should consistent with "Options", "Sync" & "About".

Steps to reproduce the issue:

1) Open Firefox Metro
2) Go to
3) Right click on a "Link" and receive the context menu
4) While the "Link" context menu is up, select the "Settings" Charm
5) Select "Permissions" (The context menu will not disappear as it would if you select "Options", "Sync" or "About"

Current Behavior:

- Currently the context menus (text, links, images) are not cleared when selecting "Permissions" from the "Settings" charm

Expected Behavior:

- The context menu should be cleared the same way it does when a user selects "Options", "Sync" or "About".

Went through this and also working for me, went through the following:

- Right clicked text links, image links and swiped the Windows Charm (cleared the context menu)
- Right clicked text links, image links and pressed Windows + C (cleared the context menu)
- Ensured context menu's from touch/mouse are being cleared once the Windows Charm is being swiped in
- Ensured it works with full/filled views without issues
