Thunar right click menu is shaking

Hi,

when i right click on some files (i my case subtitle files like idx or sup) the context menu is shaking. This occurs only when the application subtitleedit is set up as [Added Associations] in the file ~/.config/mimeapps.list. Subtitleedit is a windows tool that works with mono not with wine. It works absolutely perfect. Here are the lines in the mimeapps.list for idx subtitle files

[Added Associations]
application/x-idx=subtitleedit.desktop;

[Default Applications]
application/x-idx=bdsup2sub++.desktop;

As you can see idx files are normally opened with bdsub2sup, when i want to open it with subtitleedit i can use the right click menu and choose subtitleedit. The problem don't occur all the time. I had no problem on xubuntu 18.04. Xubuntu 20.04 was a new installation, no upgrade from 18.04.

Thunar is version 1.8.14

Sorry, I couldn't say.

Anyone has a hint?

Re: Thunar right click menu is shaking

I going to go way out on a limb here. Is a movie playing when you right click on these files? If the movie isn't playing, does right clicking on these files still have a shaking window?

I'm thinking the movie accessing the files might be helping to cause this, and suspect the fix alcornoqui linked to will probably also resolve this issue.

Re: Thunar right click menu is shaking

There is no movie playing.

Fixed in thunar master since !10 (merged) (static context menus now)

What does this mean? I only install my applications using the official ubuntu repos. At the moment i have thunar 1.8.14 installed on ubuntu 20.04. What version do i need?
