Because you haven't seen this doesn't necessarily mean others haven't 
either.

Yes, there is an answer, detailed in Comment #15 in the Mozilla bug DB 
post I provided a link to.

While I was looking for that it didn't take me long to find several 
examples of users experiencing this with Apple status icons, mostly 
audio but sometimes Bluetooth.

I've seen this myself with one of Apple's Finder menus, at least twice.

Perhaps, but there's a fair number of them, including Xojo, Mozilla, 4D, 
Qt, and others who've run into this as well.

Perhaps OS X is the only software of its scope to be bug-free, and 
everyone else is just incompetent.

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps...

I realize you're busy, but if you find the time to read Comment #15 at 
the link I'd taken the time to research for you the details there may be 
helpful.
