In Opera 28, Win 8, I can't select a mileage from the location distance dropdown - when I move my mouse over the select options, the popup vanishes.

  • Thanks for the image @James. I wasn't sure if that was needed.

    It was ShadowWizard who added the image :) See Revision History by clicking on the "edited" link in your question. I just corrected typo in the title.

Under Windows the select dropdown doesn't appear to bubble hover events up to the parent container. Our popup uses the :hover and :focus pseudo-classes to decide when it should display.

It also supports a couple of explicit classes _focus and _hover - I've added some JS which manually applies _hover when the the dropdown has focus which fixes the issue.

Thanks for the report :)

  • Ah, so much better. :) It's not that I don't like using my keyboard to navigate...I just like options.
