Public bug reported:

I right click a URL to open in another tab, and when I move the mouse
down the menu, as soon as I leave the URL area, the dialog box is
closed.  If I type t for open in another tab, it works.  If I search all
tabs for an open dialog, and close it, then this works fine.  I have the
latest FireBird and all Ubuntu updates.
