Go here:

-Click on the red div to give it focus. -Ensure that the cursor is exactly below the "Target" but some distance below it. -Press Shift-F10 -The Menu shows up. -On Chrome the first item is selected by default. -On FF the item on which the cursor is hovering is selected.

It seems the proper behavior is the first item should be highlighted in the Firefox case.

Yah, when the menu shows up underneath the cursor it generates a mouseover event. Seems like a Firefox bug, but I guess we could work around it by ignoring mouseover events that occur immediately after displaying a menu. I think the problem isn't limited to context menus. It could happen with drop down menus too, when the dropdown menu is opened via keyboard.
