I'll attach a testcase for more clarity. Reproducible: Always
Created attachment 172562 [details] Bug that shows problem. Should open with two selection boxes, both marked with "No" as the default. Select "Yes" in the first selection box and then set focus outside the first one (by tabbing or clicking elsewhere). The first selection box goes back to the defualt attribute value of "No".
I debugged this last night. This bug is related to how the node values are set by nsXFormsSelectElement. Most controls have gone to nsXFormsUtils::GetNodeValue(mBoundNode) and nsXFormsMDGEngine::SetNodeValue(mBoundNode) instead of doing it by hand. Honestly, I don't know exactly what is going wrong, other than when the node value is set now by ::WriteSelectedItems, it sets it just fine. But then when the value is about to be read back in nsXFormsSelectElement::Refresh(), the act of ennumerating the child node list will cause the string that held the value in the textnode to be freed and re-assigned to its original value. When I change to use the new approach noted above, the problem is corrected. I will post a patch today.

Comment on attachment 172587 [details] [diff] [review] proposed fix Isn't this breaking support for multiple selected values?

Actually, doesn't break the support...we currently don't work with muliselect list boxes -> https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=278207. Do you want me to hold off with this patch until that is fixed?
rather fix Bug 278207, it will probably help with this one too.
