           Summary: font:inherit on select elements causing reload
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://www.bankofcanada.ca
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.6
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CSS
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: newt at bankofcanada.ca

Over the past week or so we've been receiving user feedback from users running Safari 5.1 that select elements were not working correctly on our site. After testing on various browsers on both Windows XP and Mac OS X 10.6.8 we've determined it's only an issue when running Safari 5.1 on Mac.

We've narrowed the issue down to a CSS bug (JavaScript disabled). It seems that removing 'font:inherit' fixes the problem.

Steps to Reproduce:
Visit the URL and attempt to use any drop-down select menu on the site. On the header of the main page there is a select element used beside the search form. The behaviour can be reproduced by clicking on that.

Observed Behaviour:
The page reloads.

Expected Behaviour:
Clicking on the select element should display the list of options associated to that select.

Additional Builds and Platforms:
Tested on OS X 10.6.7 with Safari 5.05 (no issue)
Tested on OS X 10.6.8 with Firefox 3.6.6 (no issue)
Tested on Windows XP with Safari 5.1 (no issue)
Tested on Windows XP with IE7, Firefox 5.0, Chrome 13 (no issue)

-We have not tested this in OS X 10.7
-We are using webfonts

Date first reported: July 25, 2011
Browser: Safari 5.1 (6534.50)
