When a select field has enough OPTIONs so that the drop-down selection menu is displayed with a scroll bar, and the field is positionied so that the drop-down will be displayed above the field, not below, then a. clicking in the field itself rather than on the down-arrow button will display the menu only as long as mouse button is pressed and b. clicking in the text are of the select field will cause a spurious selection. To reproduce: 1. Go to testcase 2. Position browser window so that drop-down on select field is displayed above the field. 3. Click in text area (where it says "other") Actual result: drop-down list is displayed only momentarily, and the selection changes from "other" to "21" Expected result: The drop-down should stay displayed until a selection is made or a click outside the list. The selection should not be changed from "other" unless another item was selected. 4. Click on down-arrow button to bring up drop-down list 5. Mouse-over the text field Actual result: the selection chanegs from "other" to "21" Expected reult: the selection should not change This happens in real life, e.g., in the OS select field in the Bugzilla bug entry form; I'll attach a test case. The spurious selections happen only when there are 21+ items in the list. Linux build 2000.01.08.08
