Firefox is 14.01, ubuntu is 12.04 latest updates. Unity 3d.

Regardless of what I'm doing in Firefox menus will stop working if I open a web page from the HUD. If I run Firefox normally everything works normal, if I then open a link, say from the ask ubuntu lens, I'll be allowed to open one menu one time, after that all dropdowns (of any kind, also url bar searches) are gone.

This also happens in safemode so addons should not be an issue.

As a matter of fact , i tried now and my Right-click option in Firefox is not working , also other web-page drop-down menus can't be expanded . – atenz Jul 24 '12 at 7:35
I found this bug report on launchpad. This happens with the "ask ubuntu" lens but not the video lens (opening links to youtube). Must be lens-related. – Fsando Jul 24 '12 at 7:53

"answer this question as a confirmed BUG linking to the Bug report" Is it something I'm expected to do? If so how do I do it? – Fsando Jul 24 '12 at 8:01
