Fluxbox annoyance - please help


Hello all,

I just installed FLuxbox and I am really thrilled with it so far. But there is one minor annoyance that I hope you can help with. If I have any window open (terminal, firefox, etc) and I right click on the desktop to get my menu, the menu immediately disappears. I have to right click twice to get it to stay long enough to choose a program. Any idea on how to fix this? Thanks.

If this is fluxbox-0.9.10, you might be experiencing it automatically reloading the menu. Each time you make a change to the menu, or reload your config files, 0.9.10 will reread the menu.
After that initial open-then-close behavior, the menu should work fine until the next time it is re-read.

I really hope this is fixed soon...I find it rather annoying.

Thanks to both of your for the answers. I am using version 0.9.10. I guess it is the automatic reloading since it works fine sometimes. I'll have to wait until it is fixed.

But would it be possible to autoreload it without blinking? BTW if I just wait it shows up again so I don't have to click twice.

It used to work that way...even when I had a huge menu including thousands of lines, reloading was seamless. I guess it's a new bug?
