web site menu needlessly jumps around

Description

Go to a page like

https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-hidden-service.html.en

Examine the menu on the left. Think of what you want to put your pointer on, and move your pointer there. *Because* your mouse-pointer is there, the location of things near it is different! Where you wanted to click changed because you tried to click. That's annoying, and it gives no new functionality. You may wish to emphasize what the user is going to select if they click, but there are better ways than changing the layout of the menu to do it.

I suggest making the text a different color. That's almost always safe, and it's what people expect.

Yep, this is really annoying. Defering it to website redesign, however.

This is not happening anymore for me in current Tor Browser 7.5.6 (based on Mozilla Firefox 52.9.0) (64-bit)

With TBB 7.5.6 (52.9, 32bit, js enabled or not) the font switches to bold on hover and back unhovering. Is this the described behavior? Otherwise I am not sure to understand

Because* your mouse-pointer is there, the location of things near it is different! Where you wanted to click changed because you tried to click.

If it's about the colour I can create a PR. Which color do you prefer, #4e6a20, the menu background of the active page, or anything else?
