Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1262601
apps-menu items will not highlight
Last modified: 2017-08-01 18:41:41 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
Menu item is not highlighted 50% of time, but clicking on item opens application correctly.
Highligting should be more reliable.
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.
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
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.
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.
I highlighted Application menu items for a considerable amount of time and had 100% consistency.
