Bug Description

On my F16 machine with Firefox 9.0.1, dashboard's popup menus don't work (the example I'm trying is under 'instances + volumes'->'edit instance' menu).

Hovering over causes the menu to appear quickly in the top left corner, disappearing soon after since the mouse isn't anywhere near the menu to keep it active.

I assume this must be working for someone, so if this isn't the correct fix I'll be glad to help debug the situation further.

Apparently that patch isn't really correct, and this is a behavior difference between chrome and firefox at least. I've about reached the end of my css skill already so maybe someone else has thoughts.

Googling around a bit I did find these which may be relevant (possibly fixed in firefox 10)

Removed myself as assignee since I don't think I have the skillz at this point to fix it :)

Absolute doesn't work in Firefox from my experience across all operating systems. Relative would work, but it would cause the table to expand with ul.rows_action being set to active class.

Tables do not respect absolute, you have to have a container wrapped around set to relative for this to work.
