User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150413143743

Steps to reproduce:

Req: two pages, one is a login with name, password, and another where there's a form with a select field and a few options

1. go to the login page 
2. sign in with a name and password not stored by Firefox
3. after login, the second page loads and the Save Password popup appears
4. in the second page, try to select an option in the form's selection field

Actual results:

The select is broken, no matter what option you choose, Firefox automatically goes back to the default first option

As soon as the Save Password popup disappears the select will work ok, but until the Save Password is visilbe, during the first click, the select is broken

Expected results:

First click on select choose the option as it was last year.
Hi Spanyik,

Can you please provide examples of web pages so I can reproduce your issue on my environment? The provided php attachment is not working. 

Also, can you please test this on the latest Firefox release (43.0) or latest Nightly (46.0a1, and tell me if this still reproduces for you ? When doing this please use a new fresh Firefox profile, maybe also in safe mode ( Sometimes this kind of issues could appear when using custom settings, themes or some addons.

The reporter sent me trough email a test case where I could test this and I managed to reproduce the issue using latest Firefox release (43.0) and latest Nightly build (46.0a1).
