Have had this problem for a couple of years now, across dozens of Firefox updates. Decided to finally make a post since have not been able to find anything online.

Normally not too much of an issue as I can edit on a different computer through Firefox Sync (or through the Bookmarks manager), just posting to see if anyone else has seen this before.

If I open a Bookmarks Toolbar folder, then right-click a bookmark to edit it, the contextual menu appears behind the open folder dropdown menu.

Issue persists even if I reset Firefox, or even completely uninstall / remove ALL its bits and pieces, reboot, and do a clean install.

Since I am on a Mac, I use the AppCleaner app from FreeMacSoft to completely remove an app.

This happens only on one of my two Macs. Have never seen this behavior on any other Mac (I work on dozens for work). Both my Macs also have Win 10 installs through BootCamp and those two also behave normally. I use Firefox Sync across 4 Firefox installs (2 Mac OS and 2 Win 10), an iPhone, and an iPad.

Screenshot enclosed below. Feel free to ask for any other info you may need. I recognize this may not be a Firefox issue. There seems to be a funky interaction between my install of Mac OS and Firefox. This occurs only with Firefox. All other apps exhibit normal menu behaviors.

Tech details: Firefox 117.0 Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7 running on mid 2012 15" MacBook Pro with 1 TB SSD and 16 GB RAM

Many Thanks!

This could be a problem with using native context menus on Mac. Try to set widget.macos.native-context-menus = false on the about:config page.

FIXED!! Thank you!

Unrelated question: When I was composing my question, the editor gave me the option to click a button to automatically provide all sorts of diagnostic info with my post, but after I posted my question, none of that is visible (to me).

Is all that diagnostic info visible to Firefox peeps behind the scenes or was I supposed to copy / paste all that info into my main question post?

Just asking for the future.

Thanks!

I can see that Troubleshooting Information by clicking "More system details" in the Question Tools sidebar. This information is available for members of the contributors group, but should also be available to the thread creator assuming that you are logged in. Formatted, it shows like this to me.
