Description rudolf 2015-09-13 05:47:21 EDT
Description of problem:

Submenu items will sometimes not highlight when pointing mouse cursor over them.

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

Name        : gnome-shell-extension-apps-menu
Arch        : noarch
Version     : 3.14.4
Release     : 9.el7

Steps to Reproduce:
1. click Applications
2. move mouse to Favorites
3. move mouse to right, over first sub-menu item

Actual results:

Menu item is not highlighted 50% of time, but clicking on item opens application correctly.

Expected results:

Highligting should be more reliable.
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2015-09-22 13:25:31 EDT
seems to be only the first time you enter the submenu, after the open submenu changed, and only for the item you enter initially. As soon as you veer over another item in the submenu, the selection is shown.
Comment 2 rudolf 2015-09-22 14:25:29 EDT
Yes, your description is 100% accurate.

I think that clicking on non highlighted menu item is somewhat mentally confusing :)

It's present in all Gnome versions since 3.8, including 3.17 beta.
I reported bug in upstream https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=754959
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2015-09-22 15:21:42 EDT
thanks for the upstream bug. given that this has been present for a long time (thus not a regression), I'll move this bug to 7.3.
Comment 4 rudolf 2015-10-07 17:52:22 EDT
Patch is available upstream, would be nice to have this extension fixed in 7.2

At this point, only blocker bugs are considered for 7.2. However we should include the fix in RHEL 7.3.
Comment 8 Michael Boisvert 2017-06-06 16:33:34 EDT
I highlighted Application menu items for a considerable amount of time and had 100% consistency.
