Drop down menus on Firefox do not work
Last modified: 2011-06-28 10:04:31 EDT
Description of problem: Drop down menus on Firefox no longer display after recent fedora updates were applied. The fedora drop down menus function properly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
2.attempt to access File, Edit, etc. menus
3.no drop down selections are displayed
I'm having the same problem intermittently with Firefox 14. Both the drop down menus and the menu for the NoScript plugin fail to operate some of the time. Both seem to fail at the same time.
Firefox installed is firefox-3.6.13-1.fc14.i686
Kernel is kernel-188.8.131.52-74.fc14.i686
I have not yet figured out the conditions that cause the problem, so I don't know how to reproduce it.
More regarding my previous comment:
Twice recently it has seemed that after encountering the problem and then waiting a long time, the menus begin working.
Can you try it from safe mode? $firefox -safe-mode
Do you have any webpage loaded? Or is it happen with epmty page?
This was a short term problem that was corrected by a subsequent update for either FF or keyboard device.
This bug appears periodically with new releases and is somehow related to the underlying hardware keyboard functionality. This bug has been fixed in both FE-13 and FE-14. Please close this bug as fixed.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
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 prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 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 please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 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.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
