'Bookmark this page' popup extends off screen - can't drag it, ignores wmcrtl and WM

Low priority bug PM inherited from FFx: With large fonts, the pop-up for "Bookmark This Page" entry on the Bookmark menu extends off the screen. It's not a big deal for me - more and more I try not to use this at all, but instead to use the "Add Bookmark Here 2" extension approach and rename with "properties", but I thought somebody might want to know.

Normally I fix things like this with instructions in my window manager's config file, in this case, ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml, but I have to have way to designate the window in question. I can't get obxprop (a modified xprop) to inspect the window. When I try either the window disappears or obxprop complains "Unable to grab the pointer device".

Code: Select all

sleep 10 && wmctrl -r :SELECT: -e 0,0,0,1000,500
followed by getting popup up results in:

Code: Select all

ERROR: Cannot grab mouse.

Code: Select all

sleep 10 && wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -e 0,0,0,1000,500
& the same results in moving the PM main window.

Don't know when it changed or whether the relevant change was in PM, its settings, or some other part of my system, but this is fixed for me now.
