It's very weird how it behaves.

For a start, I can't explain the focus issue. Even if I force the
focus to be on the popup menu, it doesn't change anything.

I had to completely disable the palette you set in MythUIBrowser to
display sites with no background. Without disabling those the web page
never appears at all.
Without it, at least the page shows up when the menu is opened.
