[Bug] Selector dropdowns favor mouse hover over actual selection
Open, LowPublic



  • On
  • Language list dropdown is open
  • Type in (say) "es" over default language ("en")
  • Spanish gets highlighted
  • Mouse cursor happens to be over another entry (say, "de-ch"), which is not highlighted
  • Press return key
  • Language gets set to "de-ch"

Expected outcome:

  • Language gets set to "es"

Found with Firefox 85 beta (Mac), not tested elsewhere

Tested it on chrome and it happens the same. What also happens is that if you write ES in the language field, and your cursor is at EL, and then you want to go down with the arrow key on keyboard, the counting starts from EL, and not ES which is highlighted.
