Description Berend De Schouwer 2020-01-30 14:46:19 UTC
Description of problem:

Context menus are sometimes invisible when they are started close to the bottom of the screen.  Sometimes the menus are visible, but the highlight is missing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This wasn't a problem in 72.0.1-1

How reproducible:

Sometimes.  One minute it works, the next it doesn't, without restarting the browser.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a web page
2. Find a link close to the bottom of the screen
3. Right click

Actual results:

One of:
1. context menu invisible
2. context menu visible, choice/highlight invisible
3. context menu visible, choice visible

Note: it's invisible, but it reacts to mouse clicks

Expected results:

Context menu displays normally, all the time.


Scroll the web page, so there's enough space for the context menu to appear, and the menu will appear normally.

Additional info:

Running on Gnome/Wayland

Context menu is invisible, but it does work.  If you click on (nothing) you'll get the required action.

Invisible means no context menu, not even a white rectangle.

Sub-menus are visible if there's enough screen space to display them, even though the context menu is invisible.

Tried and replicated in Adwaita and other themes.

Almost always reproduces for me when left clicking a link somewhere at the bottom of the screen.
This behavior appeared in 72.0.1-2. In 72.0.1-1 there was no problem.
