Bugzilla Sandstone Skin: The moz_login dropdown collapses when I move over its entries


( Graveyard :: Sandstone/Mozilla Skin, defect)

Not set


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: freddyb, Assigned: glob)




I am logged in to bugzilla and getting to my preferences requires me to move over my email address and then click on Preferences in the drop down list.
Sad thing is, the drop down already collapsed when I move may mouse away from my email address down to the items (My Bugs, Preferences, ...).

This doesn't appear to happen on all pages though, but on show_bug and enter_bug.
NoScript disabled downloading the Open Sans woff that the CSS includes. Once I whitelisted it, the dropdown worked as intended.

My assumption: if I block the font, the calculated sizes are probably wrong and I will shortly highlight something between email address and the dropdown, which makes it collapse again.

I would love the theme to work without the font. There's a reason NoScript blocks them by default.
i'm unable to reproduce this issue, even with noscript blocking fonts on aurora.  the menu appears in the correct location, and i can easily select an item.
I noticed that it heavily depends on my mouse cursor speed. The slower I move my cursor from the email address to the dropdown list, the longer the time I am in between those two and the more likely it is for the dropdown to disappear.
This issue is causedby the style for ".links .dropdown ul" in global.css line 194 following.
If it was "top: 24px" instead of 26px it would work regardless of the font.

I understand that there's little point in supporting every users's setup with this theme and it might look like an edge case here. Maybe there's a way to make the dropdown appear below the username regardless of the font used?
i can reproduce the problem now, will investigate.
