on a form input text, if you shrink down your form history to one entry with
typing some letters (or if there is only one from the beginning) and push key
down/key up to select that one entry, it doesn't seem to be selected like when
you select it with the mouse cursor.
I was many times confused and hit the down key twice or whatever and did the
wrong thing because of no visual acknowlegement.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. select an input text from a form
2. type some letters to shrink down the input field history to one entry
3. type key down or key up

Actual Results:  
history disappears but entry is selected

Expected Results:  
history entry should be visible and marked as it is with two or more history

The Bug only affects "Plastikfox Crystal SVG" theme (or perhaps some other
themes with similar problems). Sorry for not testing that out. I don't know
details about theme-configurations, but it seems that the bug can be fixed with
a more careful theme-configuration or there is some fix to prevent themes to
have such bugs at all in firefox.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
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
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
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.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
