This problem occurs w/ slightly unbalanced HTML (see attached) on 0.9.7. It works fine in Netscape 4. With the unbalanced <font> in this example, selecting ANY entry in the dropdown selects the first entry (AL), no matter which i chose from the list. Submitting the form shows that AL is indeed the selection. This bug appears when selecting a user rating on half.com and when selecting the shipping state on stores.yahoo.com . This doesn't happen w/ the <font> balanced or if you change the spacing of <form></form>, so I'm guessing that the engine tries to guess where to balance the </font> and guesses wrong, but I have no idea why that would cause the bug.
oops -- looks like the problem is w/ 0.9.6. however, i seem to recall that my 0.9.7 at home has the same problem.
Created attachment 66819 [details] test case which exhibits the bug. simplest test case i can find which exhibits the bug. I think that this may be two bugs -- the engine guesses where to put the </font> incorrectly, which triggers the real bug (the can't select bug).
worksforme with current build. A lot of form control stuff got rewritten post-0.9.6 and some more post-0.9.7 so please retest with a recent build,
works for me as well on the latest nightly. sorry about that.
Not a problem. Marking worksforme, but please reopen if this pops up again.
