Description DuvJones 2020-01-22 05:14:51 UTC
Description of problem:
So while using firefox builds 72.0.1-2 and 72.0.2, when using the right-click popup menu... the menu is invisible but active and can gain visibility in sub-menus of the popup menu.
For some reason this only happens on the second use of the right-click popup menu.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open program with multiple links in it
2.Right-click a link then clear the menu from the page
3.Right-click on another link

Actual results:
On the second use of right-click on a link, the popup menu is invisible. You can access sub-menus which are visible but the popup menu of right-click is not.

Expected results:
A menu pop's up and is visible to use 

Additional info:
One thing that I did notice in Koji was this note by Jan Horak, that firefox 72.0.1-2 has "Added fix for wrong cursor offset of popup windows". I have no idea if that has anything to do with this error.

For now, I have downgraded to 72.0.1-1

Jan, can you look at it please?
Meanwhile fixrefox-x11 should fix that for you.

To be honest, I will be honest I was considering that but I really, really like toying with Wayland now. Firefox-x11 doesn't really help with me because I would be running it through xwayland, which is still X11 and I want to get away from that, permanently if I can.

Same problem. Installed firefox-x11, and not experiencing the problem.

Sorry, it's a mutter bug: - Windows that should appear off the main window does not shows up.

Well, that isn't good.... but at least we have the source of the issue. Any idea if this will be fixed in time for 3.36?

This message is a reminder that Fedora 31 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 31 on 2020-11-24.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '31'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 31 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 8 Ben Cotton 2020-11-24 16:48:40 UTC
Fedora 31 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2020-11-24. Fedora 31 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
