In the query page goto the field "Summary:", now use the <tab> key which I would expect to bring me to the "case-insensitive substring". It does do this but when I try to use the <space> key to see the other options, the page is scrolled to the end of the page. BTW to see the same place (i.e. the "case-insensitive" menu ) simply take the mouse out of teh window and back in again.
this sounds like a joki bug (but maybe also pollmann's bug?)

firstname.lastname@example.org - are you still seeing this problem on recent builds of Mozilla? Gerv
Yes I still see the same behaviour. And some more strangeness.. When focus is on the option menu for "Summary:" and I use either the "Up" or the "Down" key, the option does indeed change but the page also scrolls !!
Do combos need to set some status on the cursor key event to let it know not to propagate up to the root window?
This seems to work correctly in today's build on Linux
This is, I think, merely a case of the space-to-drop-down key binding not being implemented yet. The other behaviour you mention is, I think, I known issue. Rewriting summary, confirming (using M15 (20000418) W95). Gerv

Ever confirmed: true
Summary: tab keys, and focus → "Space" does not drop down list box - has default behaviour instead

I assume that pressing the spacebar when a combobox has focus is a Linux behavior, because this doesn't do anything on Windows. Mac?
Well looking at the previous comments I am not so sure that it should not also be in windows and mac versions. However I was expecting this behaviour from a UI point of view as it is fairly standard behaviour that the space bar shows all the options.
Well the issue of the page scrolling seems ok again, I think maybe saari fixed it. As for the space opening up a options list I'm unfamiliar with that behavior. Doing a quick check on Windows this doesn't occur in IE or Navigator 4.x. I'm going to mark this WONTFIX.

VERIFIED. The arrow up/down issue should also have been fxed a while ago as well.
