User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6

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
Version: unspecified → 2.0 Branch

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?

It happens on all like hgtv.com, my yahoo mail will not let me check to delete mail. It is even doing it on bookmarks the menu usually dropped so I could pick the bookmark I wanted and now it won't stay for me to scroll down to the bookmark I choose.

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?
vThis bug was reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. 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
