The problem occurs only on Linux. Using Firefox on Windows does not show this
problem. I'm not sure why.

Basically, when you register on the above page, there is a form for you to fill
out. However, instead of using standard dropdown lists, a few of the choices
offered pop up a window where you select the value and press OK. It is then
supposed to put the value in the form.

It doesn't work. At all. I thought it was because it was a IE-only site, but
Firefox on Windows works.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Register a bogus ID and password
2. When you get to the form, choose the Nationality section
3. Try to enter a nationality. Nothing happens.

Actual Results:  
The data was not inserted properly.

Expected Results:  
It should have been inserted, just like it does on Windows. I don't have any
special ActiveX plugins installed on my Windows system.

highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
