    Summary:
    
    Popup menus were not working in Thunderbird under Unity 2D when started
    from the launcher.
    
    Software Description:
    - unity-2d: Unity interface for non-accelerated graphics cards
    
    Details:
    
    USN-1463-2 fixed a bug in Unity 2D exposed by a recent Firefox update. It
    was discovered that the issue was only partially fixed on Ubuntu 11.04.
    When Thunderbird was started from the launcher, Thunderbird was still
    unable to obtain pointer grabs under certain conditions. This update fixes
    the problem.
    
    Original advisory 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 11.04:
      unity-2d-launcher               3.8.4.1-0ubuntu1.2
    
    After a standard system update you need to restart your Unity 2D session to
    make all the necessary changes.
