Close the right-click menu after clicking on a menu item

If I right-click on a site in the the left pane to bring up the contextual menu, clicking on a menu item runs the command but does not close the menu. I have to click somewhere else on the screen to close the menu.

If I click on the arrow next to the site name to bring the menu up, however, clicking on a menu item runs the command and does close the menu.

It would be helpful if the behavior were consistent, preferably with the menu closing after clicking on a menu item.

Using on Firefox 20.0.

Thanks for the great service!

It should close the menu. Something’s up then. What are you clicking on that should close the menu? Is this a feed menu or a story title menu?

I first noticed in the feed menu, but I just tested it in the story title menu, and I get the same results.

For example, some times I want to mark a given feed as read because I know that I’ve read all of the stories in it outside of NewsBlur. So, I right click on the name of the feed in the left-hand panel, it brings up the menu, and I click “Mark as read”. It marks the feed as read, but the menu still shows until I hover over another part of the page for a few seconds or click on another part of the page.

If I do the same thing but left-click on the arrow next to the feed name (the arrow shows up when I hover over the name of a feed) instead of right-clicking to bring up the menu, the menu closes immediately after I click “Mark as read”. I think it would be preferable if this were the behavior for both methods of using the menu.

Thanks for your help!
