With the Global Menu Integration enabled, sometimes drop down and context menus inside Firefox will stop working. They show up for a moment and immediately disappear. This includes context menus of tab buttons and web pages, and drop down menus opened from toolbar buttons. The problem lasts until Firefox is restarted.

To reproduce:
With Global Menu Integration enabled, toggle the Navigation toolbar (View - Toolbars - Navigation Toolbar).
This is one way I've found that always reproduces the problem. Whether the toolbar was toggled on or off, it triggers the problem for me. It happens even when this is the only enabled extension, and does not happen when it is disabled.

Upstream bug:

There is a patch, not approved yet:

I uploaded libdbusmenu-qt-patched:

Is it possible a merge with libdbusmenu-qt in [Extra]?
