Problem with Firefox list/menu

 7:47 pm on Apr 1, 2008 (gmt 0)

I am having a problem with the functionality of a menu/list in FireFox. In IE the list/menu works fine but in FireFox when you click the list, you have to hold down your mouse or else the options will collapse and you will have to click it again and hold the left click down to view the items to select one.

Here is the list code:

<select name="cat" id="cat" onchange="getSuggest2(event)">
<option selected="selected" value="none">None Selected</option>
<option value="Accounting and Finance ">Accounting and Finance </option>
<option value="Admin / Office">Admin / Office</option>
<option value="Arch / Engineering ">Arch / Engineering </option>
<option value="Art / Media / Design ">Art / Media / Design </option>
<option value="Biotech / Science ">Biotech / Science </option>
<option value="Business / Mgmt ">Business / Mgmt </option>
<option value="Customer Service ">Customer Service </option>

Any help is appreciated!

It has to be something else in your page. The little snippet you've supplied, on it's own, will work exactly the same in IE and FX.

Thank you! I inspected my code some more and realized that I had opened up a <label> before my text box and didnt close it until after the list was displayed. I fixed the problem by closing the label after the text box and opening a new one before the list and closing it after. Silly mistake on my part. I wonder why this error didn't affect IE at all. I guess FireFox is just more strict all around.
