Clicking in unused menubar does not work
I have read a thread discussing this issue. Something about menubar translucency...?

I am using FP 2.5 with 10.5.8 on an Intel-Core Duo-based iMac (rev 4,1). Under system preferences, I find no way of toggling menubar translucency. Invoking FinderPop with no visible desktop, therefore, is a pain in the arse. How can I work around this issue?

Re: Clicking in unused menubar does not work
AFAIK the menubar tranlucency checkbox is here ... os-x-tips/

System Preferences -> Desktop & Screen Saver -> "Desktop" tab -> checkbox at bottom of window.
Do you not have that checkbox?

Alternatively, you can make FinderPop treat all RIGHT-CLICKS or CONTROL-CLICKS on the menubar - regardless of location - as "unused" clicks by doing this in the Terminal:

defaults write com.finderpop.finderpop controlClickAnywhereInMenubar true

You will have to logout and re-login again after doing this, but then control-click or right-click anywhere in the menubar should bring up the FP menu...

If you want to remove that setting, do:

defaults delete com.finderpop.finderpop controlClickAnywhereInMenubar

...followed by logout/login.
