A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

Summary:

Popup menus were not working in Firefox under Unity 2D.

Software Description:

Details:

USN-1463-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox. The Firefox update exposed a
bug in Unity 2D which resulted in Firefox being unable to obtain pointer
grabs in order to open popup menus. This update fixes the problem.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  unity-2d-panel                  5.12.0-0ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 11.10:

Ubuntu 11.04:
  unity-2d-panel                  3.8.4.1-0ubuntu1.1

After a standard system update you need to restart your Unity 2D session to
make all the necessary changes.
