2 Background palette popups

Clicking the Background button from Table toolbar opens background palette popup twice. Clicking the 2nd palette closes the 1st palette.

PS. Encountered in Writer; but same behavior across OO.
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-05-28 07:24:33 UTC
 Reproducible with "AOO 4.2.0-Dev – German UI / German locale [AOO420m1(Build:9800)  -   Rev. 1597166  2014-05-20 1]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic” 4. User Profile used for all predecessor versions:

(Long) Click on a character color icon (or similar)brings up the picker. I can move it away and do a second long click on the same icon: next instance of the same picker appears.  Same with Navigation tool (below vertical scrollbar) and lots of other pickers.

But I can't confirm that I get 2 pickers with one click.

f) Can you please add some more information:
   f2) Concerning your Mouse and mouse settings
   f3) concerning your PC 
   f4) concerning your Operating System (Version, Distribution, Language)
   f5) concerning your AOO version (with Build/revision ID if it's not a 
      public release) and localization (UI language, Locale setting)
   f6) AOO settings that might be related to your problems 
      (video hardware acceleration, ...)
   f7) how you launch AOO and how you opened the sample document
   f8) Whether your problem persists after you have renamed your user profile 
     (Quit Quickstart before!) before you launch AOO (please see   <>
   f9) Whether that worked in former OOO / AOO Versions 

Please do not cite these hints in your reply, but cite the items like:
f7): Desktop-icon for soffice.exe / AOO File menu -> Open

Very old problem, already in OOo 1.1.5. 

Can you please check for DUPlicates?
Comment 4 Tal 2014-05-28 10:39:17 UTC
Rainer, your long description is more accurate than my initial description. Thanks for checking this. The problem exists after opening the color picker, moving the popup window, and clicking again. I encounter this behavior, just as you did, on Win 7, AOO 4.1.0. 

I searched duplicate issues [again], but no luck. Found only a relevant meta  bug#105642.

Solution suggestion: make the picker behave as a menu selection, rather than a separate popup window.
Comment 5 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-05-28 11:03:21 UTC
CONFIRMED by discussion, we observed the same problem
