Form autocomplete dropdown menu cannot be invoked by a keyboard arrow button probably due to events such as onkeyup and onblur

No matter how many numbers you had previously entered in the From: field on the
AT&T Wireless SMS page, the autocomplete dropdown will make only a micro-second
appearance when you try to use the up or down arrow buttons on your keyboard to
make a selection. This doesn't happen in the To: field, and I suspect it has to
do with functions assigned to certain events in the From: field.

The To: field => <input type="text" name="recipient" maxlength="50" size="25"
value="" style="width:220px" class="blackCopy">

The From: field => <input type="text" name="sender" maxlength="50" size="25"
value="" onkeyup="calculate();this.blur();this.focus();" onblur="calculate();"
style="width:220px" class="blackCopy">

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter any 10-digit number in the To: field.
2. Enter any 10-digit number in the From: field.
3. Enter anything in the Subject or Message textboxes.
4. Hit the Send Message button.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 as you desire.
6. Enter 0 or however many digits you want in the From: field that would should
lead to previously-entered numbers being shown when you press the up or down
button on your keyboard.
7. Press the up or down button on your keyboard.
Actual Results:  
Good luck if you can catch any of the choices now being offered by the dropdown

Expected Results:  
A dropdown is shown and you may make a choice through keyboard selection.

This is a regression from Firefox 1.5b1, which had fixed the problem that
existed in Fx 1.0.x releases. I hope it'll be fixed before v1.5 is released.
This bug seems to be related to Bug #297329.
