The screenshot indicates, that the editor did not have the focus when the menu was 
activated (at least Qt did not recognize the focus). Please note as well, that your 
version of eric is very old (~18 months) and not supported by me anymore. Please 
upgrade to the latest version and try again.

I have the same issue with the edit menu in eric 6.0.8-1 in Ubuntu 16.04. Not
sure how the program could not have the keyboard focus either when I'm in eric
editing a file. Without search functionality it's practically unusable.

I also get occational popus like this one. Not sure it it's related.

This is the expected behavior when the editor or the shell does not have the 
keyboard focus.

The keyboard short-cuts of the affected menu items (e.g. Crtl-F for Search) are 
also not working.
