If I type SONNY without pausing, the selected item changes in the list with each keystroke and I end up on the first person named Sonny. If I type SON, then pause, then type N, it jumps back to the first name beginning with an N. It would be nice if the time delay were a configurable option in Preferences, so that you could either increase it or turn it off entirely. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
This is the intended behavior, the same as in Microsoft Windows dropdowns. I realizes it's not the ideal accessible behavior, especially because you cannot configure the timeout -- but we're mimicing Windows' behavior with our widgets. If you want to try fixing it to be configurable, then go ahead and make a hidden pref for it or something. The current timeout is in the code here: http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/layout/html/forms/src/nsListControlFrame.cpp#106
