Bug Description

running webbrowser-app on desktop. If you invoke a popup menu on a link, the menu is not placed correctly on the screen. It seems it's always centered on the screen, rather than placed directly above/below the object that the menu is associated with.

Note: context menus and dropdown menus associated to an HTML <select> node are two entirely different things.
Their positioning is not governed by the same code. Let’s use this bug report to track the positioning of context menus only.
For the dropdown menus, we will need input from the design team as this is not specified anywhere.

This bug was fixed in the package webbrowser-app - 0.23+15.10.20150827.3-0ubuntu1

---------------
webbrowser-app (0.23+15.10.20150827.3-0ubuntu1) wily; urgency=medium

  [ CI Train Bot ]
  * New rebuild forced.
  * Resync trunk.

  [ Olivier Tilloy ]
  * Use the contextMenu API new in oxide 1.8. Update the visuals for the
    context menu in narrow and wide form factors. Add text editing
    commands to the context menu. Add unit and autopilot tests for the
    context menu features. This bumps the runtime dependency of webapp-
    container and qtdeclarative5-ubuntu-web-plugin on liboxideqt-
    qmlplugin to 1.8. This also removes the qtdeclarative5-ubuntu-web-
    plugin-assets binary package, which contained only one PNG asset
    which is not used anywhere any longer. (LP: #1477310, #1477315,
