Description Quint Guvernator 2019-11-19 10:20:15 UTC
## Description of problem

After clicking an extension pinned to the overflow menu, the entire extension disappears and does not reappear until the browser is restarted.

## Software versions

- Firefox 70.0.1 (64-bit) via "Firefox on Wayland" .desktop entry
- Fedora 30
- GNOME 3.32.2 (2019-05-07, on Wayland) from /usr/share/gnome/gnome-version.xml

## How reproducible

- open 'Firefox on Wayland' .desktop entry
- ensure there is at least one extension installed with a toolbar icon, and that that it's pinned to the overflow menu
- open the overflow menu and click on an extension icon

## Actual results

- the extension window is not shown
- the overflow menu disappears
- the overflow menu no longer appears until the browser is restarted

## Expected results

The correct behavior can be seen under X11: after being clicked on, the extension menu should be shown in place of the overflow menu, which should close. After this is dismissed, it should be possible to open the overflow menu again.

## Additional info

Smells like https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1770897 which is another problem with extension windows. This bug is also a subset of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1690363 which was fixed but has reappeared in this form.

Jan, can you look at it please?

This message is a reminder that Fedora 30 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 30 on 2020-05-26.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained.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 '30'.

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 30 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 3 Ben Cotton 2020-05-26 17:53:09 UTC
Fedora 30 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2020-05-26. Fedora 30 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.
