Top menu sometimes blinks/reloads when selecting items on 2.3
I can't pin down a pattern - the same menu item will sometimes cause a menubar blink/reload when selected, and sometimes not.
Would be nice to never see this menubar reloading - would make the interface feel more solid.
Running alpha 2.3 latest iso x64 on VMWare Fusion Mac 8.0.2.

Seems to happen if you click on the menu name rather than letting pointer hovering open the menu. At least in Firefox and Chromium on Linux, Windows, and Mac. Definitely a new behavior since changing to the OAGF-style menu that follows you around, since on the menu stuck at the top you had to click to open.
Both Jared and Steve have been working on the menu, assigning to Jared since it looks like he was working on it last.

The blinking/reload I experienced and referred to in the attachment "pfSense 2.3 Toolbar Sometimes Blinks Reloads.mp4" was of the main menubar itself (the one containing the main menus such as "... VPN Status Diagnostics ...", not the pulldown submenus.
Could be the two blinking problems are related and have the same cause, though.

The blinking shown in this bug's attachment "pfSense 2.3 Toolbar Sometimes Blinks Reloads.mp4" is still there as of 2.3-ALPHA (amd64) built on Fri Dec 04 07:17:27 CST 2015.
This menubar blinking/reload is ONLY seen on Safari so far (OS X 10.11, Safari Version 9.0.1 (11601.2.7.2)).
The menubar/blinking/reload is NOT seen on Firefox Mac 42.0 or Chrome Mac Version 47.0.2526.73 (64-bit). The UI menus are working solid on these browsers.
But - the handful of Safari users out here would love a perfected pfSense 2.3, as well :). Thanks!
