Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem):
I went to an internal webpage that contained sales data and a function to sort and filter the data. However, on the filter, there are and/or/end options in a drop-down menu. Those drop-down menus would not open at all for me in Chrome, but WOULD in IE and FF.
Additionally, on the same webpage, we have menus for customer status that WOULD open, but when I went to select a status, it would not make my selection, but would revert to being empty and closed. I found a "workaround" by using my keyboard to navigate to the menu selection I wanted, hitting Tab to move to the next field (off the drop-down, leaving the menu open, but "greyed out") and then selecting the "greyed out" option with my mouse.
Why are these drop-down menus not functioning? This is a very big issue for me, since I am in this database every day for my job, and I would like to keep using Chrome. Is there a fix?

Often when i hear that problem its a z-index issue(an element sat ontop of the select box), without any webpage or code to look at i couldn't say.

Yes, it's a problem with coding that only exists in Chrome.... Which makes it a CHROME issue.

i can select a list with the mouse then press the letter/number to jump to options starting with that letter, arrow keys to move up and down then press enter to select the highlighted option. I think that is how chrome is intended to run.

I dont know i'm just a user, see if a employee can answer it for sure. Chrome updates happen continuously, it was either a mistake and it 'broke' or thats how a select box was intended to work and updated to that.
For now like i say it works for me if i hit enter before closing the list of options, it's chrome though it's nothing at fault your end

I still have issues with drop down list in Chrome. But i did find this new browser Maxthon and it solved my problems. I usually have to fill out long forms and selecting drop down with key strokes is more important and time saving process for me.

This is not any z-index issue.
I am using Chrome 15.0.874.121 and I find this problem for at least 3 modal dialogues in different occasions that I am not yet able to identify.
- Dropdown menus don't show.
- Open/Save as windows don't show until clicked in any random part of the window
- "About..." dialogue (Chrome's one) doesn't show until clicked in any random part of the window

I tried something that worked. Left click on the drop down arrow and quickly right click. The menu information was listed as well as the normal options when you right click.

I'm using Chrome 16.0.912.75 m and have the same issues with selects, the about dialog, js alert() etc.
Left + Right click works with selects but that doesn't resolve the issue for the end user.

I've actually just come across the same problem myself while doing our website, i traced down the problem to when chrome redraws the page. Whenever some animation is running on the page causing chrome to redraw the page it causes the selectbox to flicker - fix please!
I've cut out an example of it here example -> http://www.merrehill.co.uk/bim/select-flicker.php
step 1 - Try the Select notice the Flicker - then right click anywhere on the page & select "inspect element" on the page.
step 2 - On the box that appears at the bottom, select the "<body>" tag.
step 3 - On the right you will see the css styles - uncheck "-webkit-animation-name: colourChange;" to turn off the animation.
step 4 - Try the select box again and notice the flicker now dissappeared.
