User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050920 Firefox/1.0.7

When I try to select multiple elements in a HTML form (select tag) using Shift +
Left Click, no selection happens. If I try to shift + double click, the item
from the select disappers. A couple of more double click with shift pressed, the
entire selection becomes empty.

This happens only in Linux build of Firefox. I can confirm that Windows build
behaves normally and lets me select multiple entries with Shift + Left Click. I
can also confirm that Ctrl + Left Clicks works normally in Linux and Windows.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to advanced query page in bugzilla. (
2. Try to select multiple entries in any of Status, Resolution, Severity,
Priority, Hardware,OS selections using shift + left click

Actual Results:  
The items are not selected. Or simply put nothing happens

Expected Results:  
It should have selected elements between the selected items and clicked item.

Both the Ctrl and Shift modifier are used on Windows, but not on Linux (probably
just because it's standard Linux behavior). -> INVALID
