WFM 2002 07 01 04 w2k.  this kinda reminds me of the bug where the url dropdown
was misplaced, that bug was fixed a few weeks ago.  Reporter, can you try a more
recent build and see if you can reproduce there?

Using Mozilla 1.1b (20020722) and the bug happens again, it's not fixed.
Happens for me too. (linux 2002091308)
But after going to another page, and going back, it is placed correctly.
Ever confirmed: true

Reproduced on 12/23 Trunk Build for Linux. The effect does not happen when I
have scrolled all the way up, but it does happen when I have scrolled the page
all the way down and then click the select box.

It happens in Linux using the branch build too. Windows is fine. It seems to be
caused by a select box being in an iframe. Simplified test case attached.

Minimised test case

I'm seeing this bug in 1.6 on Linux, but the current testcase (added in comment
10) works fine.  I only get this bug with a select box that I have to scroll
down to get to, and only when I have used another select box earlier in the page
before scrolling down.  The bug doesn't happen if I switch to another browser
tab and back again between opening the two select boxes.

New testcase

Bug only occurs if both select boxes are in a block with "overflow: auto;" in
its style (I only discovered this while making the testcase.)  The text of this
file isn;t relevent to the bug, it is page 44 of "The Fairy Godmothers and
Other Tales" , a book currently being processed by Project Gutenberg's
Distributed Proofreaders - I noticed the bug while using DP's spellchecker.
WFM, SeaMonkey trunk 2005-06-28-07 on Linux.

Can anyone still reproduce this in a trunk build?
