Emacs 26.1 menus don’t work correctly in macOS 10.14 Mojave (just
released this week). More, precisely, to make a menu drop down you
have to click twice on the corresponding menu title (except for the
Emacs menu!). If you just click once nothing happens, but if you
click a second time on a different menu that menu drops down.

In GNU Emacs 26.1 (build 1, x86_64-apple-darwin14.5.0, NS
appkit-1348.17 Version 10.10.5 (Build 14F2511)) of 2018-05-31 built
on builder10-10.porkrind.org

Thanks for the report. I wonder if this is specific to the
emacsformacosx.com builds or if a native 10.14 build would do the same

Is there any chance you could build emacs 26 yourself to check? Or if
anyone else with 10.14 can confirm, that would be great.

The NS menus seem to be a bit kludgy, so they’re probably due for a
bit of refactoring anyway.

Hi, Alan,

I’ll try to build Emacs.app myself. In the meantime, I can confirm
that 1) I’ve had the problem with at least two builds of Emacs
(Macport’s and Emacs for Mac OS X), and 2) a colleague of mine at
work who just installed Mojave has had the same problem with the
same builds of Emacs.

Thanks. Let know how it goes.

BTW, please leave the bug tracker email address in so your email
doesn’t get lost.

Hi, Alan,

I just compiled Emacs.app 26.1 on my own, and it has exactly the same problem. To be more precise, what seems to happen is that the first click on a menu title does nothing, and the second one drops the menu down. For instance, if you click on the File menu nothing happens, but if you then click on the Buffer menu it drops down normally. Thus, clicking twice on a menu drops it down. Strangely enough, the Emacs menu is an exception, since it works correctly (drops down after one click).

Thanks a lot for your help,
