Bug Description

I originally submitted this to Firefox (, but they kicked it out as invalid (due to extension issue vs Firefox).

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux i686; rv:20.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/20.0
Build ID: 20130329030414

Steps to reproduce:

Right click on a web page (background, edit box, button, link, etc).

Actual results:

The context menu that is displayed now has way too many items (like it has no context, but every possible item).

Expected results:

The context menu should only contain items that apply. This issue started for me in version 19 with only 2 extra context menu items (Copy Video Location and Copy Audio Location) for links. In version 20, the context menu is so long now it won't fit on the screen (screen shot attached). Also, the context menu choices for copy and paste don't function. The paste menu entry is disabled when it should not be (using the keyboard shortcut will paste even when paste is disabled).

This is nothing to do with either of the Ubuntu addons. It's actually an issue with older versions of Firebug. I suspect all that happened when you disabled our addon is that Firebug updated to the latest version when you restarted Firefox.

The issue affects Firefox users on all platforms, including Windows and non-Ubuntu Linux distributions

Changed in globalmenu-extension:
status: New → Invalid
