It's a known bug that will hopefully be fixed in near future.

Although the menu opens on right click at the icon, it doesn't react on further clicks. You have to left click at the indicator icons in order to get a working menu.

  • After trying this myself, I have noticed that you have to use the same mouse button that you initiate opening the menu with. The same problem described in the original question exists if you left-click the icon and right-click a menu item. Therefore, if you right-click on an indicator icon, you must right-click on the menu item you are trying to select...at least until it is fixed. Aug 26, 2015 at 19:19
