When I am using the Cygwin Xserver to display remote applications on my Fedora 25 workstation, the menus do not display correctly, or really, at all.

E.g. when running Firefox, clicking on the menu icon does not display the menu. When using "Alt" to display the traditional menus and then trying to select one of them, the menus do not display. This is not limited to Firefox, I get the same issues in LibreOffice.

I had no problems when using Ubuntu. Some applications do behave as expected, e.g. NetBeans and Gnome Boxes.

Are you on a Fedora system locally and connecting to a Windows system and forwarding (cygwin) Windows applications over X, or are you on a Windows desktop locally and connecting to a remote Fedora system?

I am on a Windows 10 (64-bit) desktop locally and connecting to a remote Fedora 25 (64-bit) system.
