Created attachment 134271 [details] screenshot showing the problem I clicked on the second drop-down box to open it. In closed state it looks like the first one. My font is Luxi Sans 16, but it seems that intel.com overwrites all font settings and uses it's own one. As always to small for 1600x1200 :-(

So why is this a Mozilla bug? The site just doesn't set enough width for the text to stay on one line....
WFM Win XP Mozilla 2003102504 FB 20031026 and IE6 too. Boris Z, are you looking at the right drop-down? The one under "Find Intel Products"?
Yes, I am. I see pretty much Boris Folgmann's screenshot with linux trunk build 2003-10-26-05. Note that I have a minimum font size of 14px set. The font size the page tries to set that text to is 10px, and if I turn off the minimum font size setting the rendering looks "better" (except for the tiny unreadable text, of course). Given Boris Folgmann's screen resolution, I would not be surprised if he also has a minimum font size set... If so, please mark this invalid.
My min font setting is 10. So it should look better, shouldn't it? The layout is the smaller problem. Why don't they work as expected?
The misbehaving I can't reproduce... e.g., I click the lower dropdown, then click on "Press Room" and I get taken to the press room. Is it a problem without multizilla? A problem with all window managers?
I upgraded to mozilla 1.4.1. Now the drop-downs work, I mean I can get to the linked pages. Of course the drop-dows still look ugly. IMHO <input> should be always as wide as its content.
Same optical problem with min font disabled.
In Linux 1.6 with and without min font size enabled I see the same behaviors described here. At direction from comment 4 and subsequent comments, marking invalid.

Created attachment 140571 [details] screenshot of option items that don't fit the select boxes I did nothing special to set this screenshot up, arriving with and leaving zoom at 100%. I have a user stylesheet overriding many common css rules. In this case, td>select is forced to inherit, which another of my rules has forced to medium. The table that select list sits in is 136px wide. Without allowing the site css specification of 10px for that select list, which either a minimum size pref or user css can prevent, the content simply can't fit in the limited space the page author provided. Is Mozilla supposed to grow an unopened select list vertically to fit resulting multiple line option items? If it isn't, which I think is the case, then this is invalid. If not, then this should be confirmed -> new to layout: form controls.
The problems that happen when the computed font-size of the select is bigger than 10px are invalid. The problems that happen when it's 10px, I have no idea; someone needs to test what happens.
