I see this as well, and have even developed a hypothesis as
to when it happens:

I right click on a link, and use "open in new tab"

Then I move the mouse down a bit and right click on a new
link to bring up the menu so I can do another new tab.

But instead of brining up the menu again, it acts exactly
like the previous menu is still posted and I clicked
on the old menu's "bookmark this link" item which
was (when the menu was up) physically located over
the new link I just click on.

It is like either firefox itself or the X input
system has gotten the event timestamps confused
and it thinks the new click is on the old menu.
