Whenever I try to get a drop box to click on it's contents it closes immediately. Also the boxes where I try to check a response the check will not enter the box. I have to do this holding the key done for several seconds. Neither of these problems happened when I use the Internet Explorer on Mozilla-Firefox.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Any drop box
2.Any check boxes
3.Does happen everytime

Expected Results:  
Want the boxes to stay open while I scroll down. Want to have to click once and have a check be in the boxes.

Up until today it has always worked fine.
what are drop boxes? how do I make a drop box appear? do I have to go to a website or is it a dialog in firefox's options somewhere? you say this only started happening today.. so what did you change today on firefox or on your pc?
Severity: major → normal

When you go to fill in one a site a box opens with Choices for you to pick one. Usually it will show all choices while I scroll down to pick my choice and then it closes the box. I haven't done anything different I even went back and tried to restore thinking it was something I did. Then I tried to use Internet Explorer and had no troubles there, so I am unsure of why. Sorry I am not more computer literate, I wish I was.Thanks for trying to fix it. 
can you please give me the address for the website that you are using?

The check boxes issues still persists with Firefox 3 beta3. Running Kubuntu every time I click on a check box the box enlarges rather than placing a cross inside. This is remedied by clicking away from the enlarged box and it then places a cross inside?

I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.3 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 3.6.x or later and a new profile ( If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
