Error description

  • On CQWeb, a combo box control is displayed in FireFox
    differently as opposed to the expected behavior that can be seen
    with Internet Explorer or the Windows and RCP  clients. While in
    these clients the control is displayed with the size that it has
    been set in the designer and includes a scroll bar if needed,
    FireFox re-sizes it so that all the entries in the list fit in
    it. With long lists this leads to big boxes that may overlap
    other controls in the form.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    - Modify the SAMPL db with CQ Designer adding multiple "Project"
    records.
    - Logon CQWeb selecting and modifying a Defect
    - In the first tab: Project > select from the drop down list a
    value
    - On IE, the list of projects is contained in a box of a defined
    size and that it includes a scroll bar, as expected
    - On FireFox, the list is bigger, just enough to contain the
    complete list of projects and it displays, remaining
    open/overlapping on top of the form even after selecting a value
    and until the record is saved.

    When editing a ClearQuest Web form on FireFox, the combo box
    control will keep its size unchanged and display contents with
    scroll bars.
