I am not sure why that is the behavior of all browsers. It suspect just like in
Chrome this is just not implemented and defaults to LTR.
I think that the popup item should be using the input field's directionality.

I think Chrome on all platforms should limit the size of the popup to the size
of the input field and use truncation.

>3. Jay mentioned that we do not want to restrict the width of combo-box

I was making that point because the code for the popup is shared by the
autofill and <select> combobox. So we want different behavior for the 2 cases:
combox, no width restriction, autofill, width restricted to the input field's
The directionality of the combobox should be consistent with field's
directionality as well.
