How to use widget Footer

I created a new type fooContainableContainer with both Containable and Container parts, then created a few instances of it.  The "Show items from" field of a Footer still shows "None- create container enabled items first".  I thought it would show fooContainableContainer.  I know I probably lack the basic understanding of "container enabled items".  Could anyone offer some tip?

It apparently doesn't want to have itself as the parent.

Thanks for the response.  I cannot reproduce it now. The Footer currently behaves just as expected - adding it prompts for choosing a widget.  This is exactly what I want.  Between now and then, I changed the theme three times before settling on Contoso which I love. I do not even see the configuration window I saw before.
