Now hit the 'f' key. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. In application, tab to a dropdown that contains the following list items: 'Printer', 'Router', 'Server', 'Unknown', and 'Workstation'. 2. On the keyboard hit the 'p' key and repeat for 'r', 's', 'u', and 'w'. 3. Actual Results: Sometimes the item will be selected in the dropdown and sometimes it will not change focus from previous item selected when changin from clicking 'p' to clicking 'r'. Expected Results: Should always go to list item Printer if I hit the letter 'p' on the keyboard and should always go to the item Server if I hit the letter 's' on the keyboard and so forth.
What menu are you talking about? I don't see a menu that contains those items.
Created attachment 202245 [details] This is a dropdown from a customized application. Sorry I forgot to mention this is from a customized application. The quick key access works as should in IE but not Firefox, (which btw, i prefer to use). I am a QA tester and I am required to test the application in both IE and Firefox. The developer is claiming this to be a Firefox bug, not his own. Is this correct?
Could you attach a minimized testcase showing the problem?

It's a Simple drop-down box (a selectable list) and when i tab to the dropdown and select a letter on the keyboard (first letter of one of the list items) it only goes to that list item sometimes, not every time. <html> <body> <form> <select name="asset type"> <option value="printer">Printer <option value="router">Router <option value="server">Server <option value="Unknown">Unknown <option value="Workstation">Workstation </select> </form> </body> </html>
Hrm... this is sort of buggy.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20051109 Firefox/1.6a1 It seems to get stuck if you type one letter two times in succession; e.g. pressing "p" twice and then pressing "w" will not take you to Workstation.
I was unable to find a duplicate for this bug (after over 30min of searching). Although, it appears you are moving too fast for type ahead. So you type "w" twice and then type "u" for unknown, you're acualy looking for "wu" according to type ahead, which isn't there, so it ignores you.
I have found the same behavior in my own Firefox web app. The selection for large dropdown lists is inconsistent. Sometimes, it jumps to the right location, and then won't jump back (from S to H, for example). Sometimes, it won't jump down the list at all, but merely changes the field in select box itself, leaving the dropdown menu open. I can provide a test case, but the bug appears to be inconsistently reproducible. It happens enough that the customers using my web app are complaining...so here I am!
All you're seeing is that if you type letters in fast sequence we select the first entry that starts with that string. It's pretty obvious if you put multiple entries with the same initial letter in the dropdown. This is by-design. And yes, it's a dup. But finding the original is just not worth the effort...
