Some windows are not displaying context menu when right clicked on theirs title bar.

I'm talking about this menu: enter image description here

Such applications are: Libre Office, Firefox, Chromium (using system titlebar and border), QT Creator etc...

This is not happening on gnome apps like Nautilus or Gnome-Terminal... so this might be issue only with non-gnome applications only but I can't say for sure.

This behavior is known to me since Elementary OS Luna but it is still present.

Edit: This is not problem caused by VirtualBox, it is present on real machine too.

  • what are you using right now and did you make any tweaks to the UI ? – Divneet singh Sep 12 '16 at 5:05
  • I'm using vanila Elementary OS. No modifications at all. – bokiscout Sep 12 '16 at 14:25
  • I was looking for something else and saw your bug so I tried and have the same issue. My profile was made from scratch, I imported settings to some apps (Chrome), but not others (LibreOffice), and can't see the menu in all of the apps you listed here. – Kristijan Puljek Sep 13 '16 at 12:39
