Gijs, do you know the dev who implemented about:preferences#search? I think this bug is here still this addition in about:preferences.

This doesn't seem specific to the search pane, I can reproduce with the "When Nightly starts: Show my home page" menulist of the General pane.

At step 4, do you mean 'scroll with the mouse wheel' rather than 'Scroll page via scroll button' as the video appears to suggest? Or is there some special scroll button on the mouse or keyboard being used? I think mousewheel events should be ignored when a menulist is open.
You need to use the mouse wheel.
Yes, you are right. I mean 'mouse wheel'. sorry, my mistake.
There are two bugs here: 1. Windows needs to implement a call to ShouldConsumeOnMouseWheelEvent to prevent the mousewheel from scrolling outside the popup. This is bug 982121. 2. When the mouse is inside the popup, the mousewheel event should be ignored. Likely, there is some search done to find the nearest scrollable frame, but this should break out when a menupopup frame is encountered.
