Bug Description

Due to a silly typo in uGlobalMenu::OnClose, globalmenu-extension fails to dispatch any popuphiding and popuphidden events when a menu closes. These events are used throughout Firefox - in particular, browserPlacesViews.js uses the popuphidden event to update some state on the places node associated with the menu. Not doing this leaves the places code in a weird state and causes Firefox to continually throw exceptions like this:

Error: uncaught exception: aPlacesNode must have _DOMElement set
