Description

In firefox 3.0.0 it isn't possible to select/right-click form elements in order to change their options. Only text input elements can be changed

try it yourself, for example:

<form method="post" name="blaat">
    <p><input type="text" value="fsdf" name="fsdfs" />dddfdfdsd</p>
    <p><select name="boij">
    <option value="fhu">ui</option>
    <option value="sgr">fsfd</option>
    <option value="re3">grge re</option>
    </select></p>
    <p>fgd<input type="checkbox" value="ger" name="ge" />gfdg</p>
</form>

If the dropdownbox is not in a p-element it can be changed. Select the dropdownbox [blue] and right-click on it. The selection will become inactive [gray]. If you then click on the icon for dropdownbox form element in the menu, it will allow you to change it's values. But not always...weird weird :S

<form method="post" name="blaat">
    <p><input type="text" value="fsdf" name="fsdfs" />dddfdfdsd</p>
<!--
 if select not in p, than it behaves differently -->

    <select name="boij">
    <option value="fhu">ui</option>
    <option value="sgr">fsfd</option>
    <option value="re3">grge re</option>
    </select>

    <p>fgd<input type="checkbox" value="ger" name="ge" />gfdg</p>
</form>

The mozilla bug repository has this bug which might be the cause of aforementioned problems: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=293771

Confirmed.

It used to be that (in FF2) we couldn't edit radio buttons, check boxes and select boxes via the right click menu, but they can still be edited by selecting them and then clicking the appropriate toolbar button. Now in FF3 the controls can't even be selected.

@martinkou: Is this ticket waiting on action from Mozilla or is this something that could be fixed by the CKEditor team?

If this is something fixable by CKEditor team, could this ticket be targeted to one of the upcoming milestones? It is quite annoying to have to remove a select box and then re-add it to simply add or remove one option.

I don't see much possibility to fix it at our side, actually we have our logics to help browser selecting the right element on 'mousedown', while in this case, FF even don't fire us a single event when click on those elements, which are nothing more than a stone :/

We could replace select elements with fake elements like we did for input hidden.

Basically there is only one problem for this, we really can't see how wide the real select element would be. But I'd think that editable fake element is better than creating selects from scratch every time you need to change them ( on FF ).
