User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/4.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET4.0C)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; fr; rv: Gecko/20100713 Firefox/3.6.7

Two options begin with the same letter (T)
The first one is disabled

While list has focus, pressing T will internally select the disabled option although the highlighted one stays the same
Confirm by pressing the up or down arrow

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open list
2. Press T
3. Optionnally, press the up arrow
Actual Results:  
Option from 1. stays selected, but internally Two is selected because pressing the up arrow then selects One

Expected Results:  
It should have selected Three

Pressing T a second time does not even select Three

Same result with list open (when you see all options) or closed (when you see the selected option)

Yes, Internet Explorer 8/9 have a very similar bug, Two becomes the selected option when the list is closed

Wanted to say SeaMonkey 2.0.6 is also affected

Not sure whether to report right now, or let you handle that after it's fixed

For "fun", I went looking for regressions

None. Reproducable from Firefox 1 to 4 on Windows
Also tried 3.6 on Centos

*changing some flags

I can confirm this with Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; rv:2.0b6pre) Gecko/20100901 Firefox/4.0b6pre. Bug 451200 is similar to this, but is not an exact duplicate.
