Firefox/Thunderbird menus often change shortly after opening (should wait while processing updates)
|||Global menubar extension||
Currently, menus in Firefox and Thunderbird often change their contents shortly after the menu opens.
* Every menu briefly appears as a stub the first time it is opened in an application session. https:/
* Thunderbird's "File" > "Send Unsent Messages" item is initially insensitive until Thunderbird checks whether there are any.
Currently, the menubar sends a signal over DBus when a user opens a menu, and this signal might trigger updates to the menu inside Firefox. Because the panel opens the menu immediately, these updates can arrive after the menu has already opened, which is visually jarring.
We need a way to postpone the menu opening until we've updated it, and then we should lock the menu structure whilst the menu popup is open to prevent any further updates causing flicker in the menu.
