Bug Description

When right-clicking on the top system bar the menu appears and disappears within 1 second instead of staying until you click somewhere else.

In order to keep it shown I have to keep holding the right-click pressed

Thank you for your bug report, do you use unity-2d or 3d? Does it happen every time?

The bug manifests itself in Unity 3D when using a dualmonitor setup. ( for information: I'm using a package called disper to activate dualmonitoring mode)

Also noticed that the bug happens on my first screen and not on the second one.

can you please attach a video to show the problem, it is likely that a similar bug is already reported so a video would help use understand this bug.

Hi - I can also confirm this behaviour. I'm using 2D mode, and a dual monitor setup.

I have also noticed that one one screen the menu disappears, but on the other monitor, it stays up.

As you can see in the video, the menu disappears instantly when single clicking. The only way to keep the menu visible is by keeping the left click pressed.

I have the same problem, where the right-click menu disappears immediately upon any mouse movement instead of letting me click an option.
Perhaps it has something to do with the workspace switcher, since it can 'restore' normal functioning if I switch to another workspace, right click there, and then switch back.

since it happens in both unity-2d/3d we can conclude it as not a bug in Unity simply.

I use Ubuntu 14.04 and the problem is still here! In previous versions it was better but in this version it is really annoying :)
