Steps to reproduce:
Enter Customization mode, move buttons around for a while, then try to move the PanelUI button on the right

Expected result:
Nothing happens, as long as the user holds down the mouse and tries to move the button (which cannot be moved, unfortunately and strangely enough) somewhere else; or maybe some kind of wiggle/shake effect or slide-down alert saying it's not possible to move the button

Actual results:
Customization mode closes itself on mouse down (before the mouse button is released), which may surprise/annoy the user

This is a tiny change, but I think it may be for the best, because it's only logical that the user tries to move the button if they actually discover they can move buttons at all.
Ever confirmed: true

Patch v1: exit Customize Mode on menu-button mouse-up

>-      case "mousedown":
>+      case "mouseup":

>             (aEvent.originalTarget == this.window.PanelUI.menuButton)) {

>           aEvent.preventDefault();
>           return;
>         }
>         this._onMouseDown(aEvent);

Calling _onMouseDown on mouseup doesn't look right. Also, why are you not using the command event?

Patch v1.1: exit Customize Mode on menu-button click

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): Australis
User impact if declined: When user presses and holds the menu-button in Customization Mode with the mouse, as if to try and drag it to someplace else, it will exit Customization Mode right away. This patch makes it so that it'll only exit after a full click, so that the use can stay in this mode after releasing the mouse.
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): landed on m-c
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): minor
String or IDL/UUID changes made by this patch: n/a

Please note that approval was granted for Fx 30, thus needs to be landed on beta, if I'm correct.
