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.

  • 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

There was a known issue in elementary OS Loki where context menus were not displayed for non-native or "client-side decorated" apps, like Firefox or Electron apps. However, this has been fixed in elementary OS Juno.
