overflow testcase

When we set up an extralong <option> content, the select element is overflowing on thw window object and flows out of the screen under windows. Testcase attached.

This bug needs confirm on other platforms and a regression range also would be necessary.

I don't think this is a regression - I see the same layout in Firefox 3 on Linux.
Chrome displays the testcase the same, fwiw.

Firefox Aurora Mac - Constrained Size

This is the size the select control should be constrained to, but it's overflowing.

Issue with fieldset

While the workaround fixes the drop-down from the select. This is what happens when there is a fieldset within a div that should be constraining the width of the select control.
IE11 on Windows 7 displays the "overflow testcase" roughly the same as Chrome / Firefox.

Though the various browsers show it consistently, I still wouldn't consider it correct as the fieldset doesn't constrain it's width to it's parent.

looks like Bug 488683, and duplication of bug 280014

Not necessarily, so we should rename this bug to make more proper
Summary: select option field overflows on the window object out of screen → select option field overflows on the parent when wrapped in a fieldset element
