When making a selection in a <select multiple="multiple"> list, Chimera beeps like a banshee when holding Shift or Command to make multiple selections. When using Command, the multiple selection isn't made. To reproduce, visit the Chimera Bugzilla query page at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/query.cgi?product=Chimera and click on "UNCONFIRMED" the "Status" select box. Now, hold down the Shift key and press the down-arrow. The multiple selection is made appropriately, but Chimera beeps. It should not have beeped. Now, hold down the Command key. Chimera beeps and the selection is not changed, but the dotted outline caret moves. In this case, a multiple selection should have been made, and nothing should have beeped. When navigating a non-multiple list box SELECT, such as the "Component" box at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Chimera, Chimera beeps when Command or Shift are held (good) but is inconsistent in its behavior: holding Shift changes the selection (then why did it beep?) while holding Command doesn't, but caret moves. (Should it? I think not, but the caret is more of a Windows thing, and I don't really understand what it's doing in Chimera anyway.) Mark
Reporter, what build ID are you reporting this bug against?
Confirmed build 1026 - OS X 10.1.5.
Marking confirmed per comment 3.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
The widget code needs a dummy impl of whatever Shift-uparrow maps to. The patch in bug 164481 may address the underlying cause.

WorksForMe, daily 0.7.0+/2003040505. Shift-UpArrow and Shift-DownArrow now extend the selection in a <select multiple="multiple"> box. Command-UpArrow and Command-DownArrow do not extend the selection, they merely move the caret, but that should be handled in a separate bug related to form control accessibility. Mark
