This is a bug that happened to me several times before I found out what is the cause. When you open the pulley menu in messages in the way that it stays open (go passed the New Message option) and close messages, the next time you open the messaging app other way than through the launcher, part of the screen is dimmed as if the pulley menu was still opened.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Go to the Messaging app where the list of conversations is shown and open the pulley menu all the way up, so it stays open.

2) Close the Messaging app either by swiping from the top or from the multitasking view.

3) Go to People app, open a person and click Send SMS. Or click on new message notification in events view, if present.

What should happen:

Messaging app should open and work as always.

What happens instead:

1) Part of the screen is dimmed (usually bottom ~75%, but I think I have experienced 100% as well) as if the pulley menu was still opened.

2) There is haptic feedback when minimizing or maximizing the Messaging app to/from multitasking view or when the phone automatically locks while Messaging app is focused.

Same behaviour here.

I don't know if this bug was addressed already, but it happened to me couple days ago. I could only chat or send messages to my contacts, if they did it first.

My experience of this bug, which happens very often, is that if I pull the pulley menu down just slightly (not all the way), then suddenly all messages are disabled.

It is frustrating, as I then always have to reboot the phone.

This is a bug in Sailfish

Thanks. We'll have pulley menus and ContextMenu close whenever the application becomes inactive or the Page containing it is not at the top of the stack, which will fix this issue and also fix some menu corner cases.
