The following revision refers to this bug: 

r18667 | | 2009-06-17 16:31:48 -0700 (Wed, 17 Jun 2009) | 8 lines
Changed paths:

Linux: Don't try to special case webkit blur when we stop showing right click context menu.

After I spent more time investigating, it seems that when the popup menu closes, it always returns focus to the toplevel that previously had it. Thus we don't have to worry about some other toplevel getting focus without us getting another focus-out.

TEST=right click spellcheck correction works in gmail
