Form autocomplete dropdown menu cannot be invoked by a keyboard arrow button probably due to events such as onkeyup and onblur
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b5) Gecko/20051006 Firefox/1.4.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b5) Gecko/20051006 Firefox/1.4.1 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 menu. 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.
