cannot edit projects

In Firefox 31.0 I cannot use any item in the menus to the right of the projects. When I click the "..." three dots the pop up menu appears. But as soon as I move my mouse it disappears. I only have this problem with Firefox.

I cleared the cache and made sure I have the most current version of Firefox.

It is the same on the website and the Firefox app/plugin

It seems to be related to the scroll bar for the projects. If I go to the top of my project list and select a project that is below the scroll bar but not low enough to force a scroll, it is ok. Anything more then halfway down my list does not work.

Hi Jon,

Is there a way you can record the behaviour so we can pass it along to our developer? You can use this website to do that: http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/.

Or if you can't, just provide me the exact steps to follow just to be sure that I'm not misunderstanding the issue when I'm try to replicate it on our end.

I can confirm this issue in Pale Moon (firefox clone) Version: 24.5.0 (x86) in Linux.

Also, this bug seems to be Firefox-specific - I've just tried Chrome 24.0.1312.56 and it works fine.

Here is how you can replicate this:

1. on the sidebar (left side, where the projects are listed), right-click on the project.
2. the menu appears with "Add project above", "Add project below" and so on.
3. move the mouse to the menu - as soon as the mouse reaches the menu, the menu disappears.

The bug appeared sometime on Friday/Saturday (25/26 July) I suppose.

To add to Jon's comments: Indeed, if you scroll to the very top of the project list and right-click on the project's name, everything works fine (in Firefox/Chrome).

Once you scroll down the proejct list from the top (even a little), the right-click action on the project stops working.

Virens description of the problem is spot on. But, another thing I just noticed is that on my home computer it seems to be ok. I will try my work computer on Monday and report back here.

I have now reported this problem to our developer and they'll take a look at it. Feel free to add more details/info.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I've replied to your other thread now :-) Basically, that's currently not possible - everyone who's invited to a project has full access to it.
