User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:6.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0.1
Build ID: 20110830092941

Steps to reproduce:

I'm using a dojo select box to open a menu.  I'm attaching a standalone test case to display the behavior.  This is a FF3.6 issue only.  It works on FF5.  The list is built with a table such that the table row has focus and the role is only the table row.  The table cell contains the data, but does not have any role.  If I add role="listitme" to the table cell it works.  


Actual results:

JAWS does not read the menu options.
Moving to the correct component.

Katie, thank you for the report but I afraid we can't fix anything for Firefox 3.6 (because basically updates are allowed to contain security fixes only). All work happens on trunk (which is currently Firefox 9), if you can reproduce the problem on trunk, beta or latest released version (Firefox 6) then please let me know. Closing bug as wontfix.
