Global menubar extension
firefox (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

steps to reproduce:
1. be sure firefox session manager is enabled (which is the default setting)
2. open more than one firefox window (i also had a tab pinned as app-tab btw.)
3. reboot system without closing firefox
4. after reboot restart firefox (and allow session restoration when asked to)
5. only the first window gets a global menu, all other windows get menus inside the window
(expected: all firefox windows get global menus)

a suppose, there is something wrong in firefox-globalmenu

Sorry, to kill Firefox seems not enough, a reboot is needed to see this.
I'll edit the description.

Still not confirming, it works fine here. And please don't reopen the firefox task. There is already a globalmenu-extension task open

I get the same problem here.

I opened two different windows, each with several opened tabs. I close Firefox, so that sessionmanager saves the opened windows including their opened tabs. When I reopen Firefox, the windows are arestored, the tabs are restored, but only one of the Firefox windows has a working global menubar, the other one has only the normal menu integrated in the window.

For me even a reboot does not help. Sessionmanager restores only one window with working globalmenu-extension.

I just fixed a startup race here which will probably fix this

This bug was fixed in the package firefox - 6.0~b1+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu1

firefox (6.0~b1+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * New upstream release from the beta channel (FIREFOX_6_0b1_BUILD1)

  * Update globalmenu-extension to 1.7
    - Fixes LP: #779905 - menubar sometimes appears inside the window rather
      than the panel, due to a startup race
  * Drop the profile migrator, as it doesn't really make any sense with the new
    release cycle. Instead, just copy the firefox profile (if it exists) to
    firefox-trunk (if it doesn't exist)
    - remove debian/migrator/xulapp-profilemigrator
    - update debian/firefox.sh.in
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/control.in
  * xpt_link and xpt_dump have been replaced by xpt.py
    - update debian/firefox-dev.install.in
    - update debian/firefox-dev.links.in
  * Add support for the system provided hyphenation patterns, by linking
    @MOZ_LIBDIR@/hyphenation to /usr/share/hyphen
    - update debian/firefox.links.in
  * Refreshed patches:
    - update debian/patches/firefox-kde.patch
    - update debian/patches/mozilla-kde.patch
    - update debian/patches/plugin-for-mimetype-pref.patch
    - update debian/patches/reload-new-plugins.patch
  * The official branding moved from other-licenses to browser. Handle this
    - update debian/rules
  * Dropped patches fixed upstream:
    - remove debian/patches/use-MOZ_APP_LAUNCHER-for-launcher-exec.patch
    - remove debian/patches/fix-nsGIOService.patch
    - remove debian/patches/default-browser-check-use-gio.patch
    - remove debian/patches/update-assembler-excl-arch-list.patch
    - remove debian/patches/default-uri-handler-check-use-gio.patch
    - remove debian/patches/powerpc-build-fix.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Drop the special "kde.js" file handling from the pref service. It hasn't
    had the desired effect since Firefox 4, as the specialfile handling
    doesn't apply to pref files inside the omni.jar. Moving kde.js back in to
    defaults/pref isn't an option, as these are always read after the prefs
    in the omni.jar, which would mean that all users would get the KDE
    specific prefs. Note, we only override one pref in kde.js anyway, it can
    go elsewhere if really required
    - update debian/patches/mozilla-kde.patch
    - update debian/patches/firefox-kde.patch
