If I open a file from Project Explorer (for example) by right-clicking on a file and selecting Open, then a tab opens in the editor with the filename in the tab but the contents of the file are not yet displayed. Instead, a context menu is presented as if I right-clicked in the file. The context menu isn't for the editor, necessarily. It is for whatever the right-most tab of the editor is. If the right-most tab is Console, for example, then Console's context menu is presented hovering over the editor. If I press Escape, the context menu disappears and the file content is shown in the editor, as expected.|
This happens from other points of origin. Project Explorer, as stated, but also when selecting within Git Repositories. If I right-click Fetch from a Remotes in Git Repositories, then again, the last tab's context menu is presented over the Fetch panel.
I think the use of the mouse is a factor, because if I use F3 from Project Explorer instead of picking Open via the mouse, then the behavior does not occur. I am immediately presented the file in an editor and without any tab's context menu. Not all actions or points of origin offer a keystroke alternative, so I need to use the mouse routinely and escaping out of the context menu is getting old.
