Description Jeremy Fitzhardinge 2001-05-29 16:25:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.4 i686; en-US; 0.8.1) Gecko/20010421

Description of problem:
The drop-down lists in the package selection cannot be opened with keyboard

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.select "customize packages"
2.try to open a list with keyboard alone

Actual Results:  You can navigate with tab and arrow keys, but space/enter
do nothing with the closed lists.

Expected Results:  It should be possible to open the sub-lists with the
keyboard alone.

Additional info:

Using text mode is a perfectly good workaround.
