Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.8.0.7) Gecko/20060909 Firefox/1.5.0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.8.0.7) Gecko/20060909 Firefox/1.5.0.7

When I cycle through the OPTION fields of a SELECT element in a html form by pressing the first letter of an entry on the keyboard, the select-mechanism cycles through all entries beginning with that letter. Changing to another key breaks this mechanism - no entry will be selected any more.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select an entry in a select-html-widget by keyboard, pressing the first char of the entry.
2. Cycle through all entries by pressing the key again: works
3. Select another entry with another "first letter" by pressing another key: Doesn't work. 

Actual Results:  
Cycling stops.

Expected Results:  
Cycling should select first matching entry.

This is new in Firefox 1.5.0.7. It worked in Firefox 1.5.0.6. and before.
