AGS: Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire Remake - Toolbar icons often glitch on click

Description (last modified by Thelypody)

Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire Remake features a top toolbar similar to Sierra's VGA games in the series. Clicking on any of the left five buttons often produces a bug where the toolbar just disappears for a split second instead of registering a click and switching cursor action. This is extremely annoying in case of the fifth button, Special Actions, as instead of opening an additional menu it just moves the cursor closer to the middle of the screen where it expects a new button row to appear. Interestingly this does not affect the right five buttons starting from the sixth Magic button.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Create a new character and start a game
2) Click on any of the top left five buttons

ScummVM 2.5.0

Upon further examination, the same issue also happens in all AGDI's King's Quest remakes.

I have the exact same issue. sometimes i get lucky and it actually appears. otherwise it glitches. almost seems like it wants to pull up but just doesnt, maybe a speed issue, it seems to quick to catch the bar

i have found an odd "workaround" if you click on the special action bar, then quickly move your mouse down(and i mean quickly) itll catch the pop up menu. it still doesnt work everytime but i can get it down to ALMOST work every time

I came into these forums to post a bug with the QfG2 VGA remake that the Special Action button, to bring up the walk/run/sneak/status etc page, wouldn't open. I believe it's this same issue. When I swipe down quickly while pressing the button I can get it to come up, like OmerMor posted (thank you!).

What's weird is that for me, all the other buttons seem to work fine, including the magic, inventory, and system menus. Only that one button consistently has the issue for me.
