[Bug 28956] Context menu for URLs is racy

Public bug report changed:

It appears that the contents of the menu are determined more by where
the mouse cursor is at rendering time than where it was when the right
mouse button was clicked.  So not only will "Copy Link Address" be
missing if the cursor happens to move off the URL you clicked on, it
will in fact be present, and copy the wrong URL into the clipboard, if
you are unlucky enough to move the cursor over a different URL before
the menu appears.

For some reason, I trip over this bug almost every day.
