if i try to make a select box with the onfocus="this.blur()" option firefox does
not show the content of the selectbox (the options). this feature is supported
by msIE and we are using it because MacIE draws a fat border around the
selectbox if we do not specify the onfocus="this.blur()" option.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.make a form select
2.insert the text onfocus="this.blur()" into the select tag on the selectbox

Actual Results:  
the selectbox does not show the options

Expected Results:  
show all possible options and let one select an option

Er... you're making sure the selectbox can never get focus, and a selectbox that
doesn't have focus can't drop down.

So this is probably invalid.

I agree with Boris, the original bug report is invalid, the menu should not
stay up after a call to blur(), see Testcase #2.

There is a bug in Testcase #1 though; the focus outline should not remain on
the second select when the first actually has keyboard focus - hit spacebar
and you will see that the upper has focus.  There is some remnant of a focus
outline on the upper one as well (on the arrow button), see screenshot.
This occurs when tabbing to the second select, not clicking on it.

Marking invalid per comments 2 and 6. The problem mentioned in comment 6 doesn't 
exist in Gecko 1.9a1.
