Apologies if this has already been discussed, I couldn't find anything with the search...

Ext version tested:

Ext JS 3.0.3
Ext JS 3.1.1

Adapter used:


Browser versions tested against:

Firefox 3.6 (incorrect)
IE 8.0.7600.16385 (correct)
Chrome 5.0.322.2 dev (correct)

Operating System:

Windows 7 x64


In Firefox, clicking on the emptyText section of the ComboBox does not cause the list to drop down as expected. Both IE and Chrome exhibit the correct behavior.
In all three browsers, the list drops down when clicking on the "clear" section of the ComboBox. This is the expected behavior.

Test Case:

var combo = new Ext.form.ComboBox({
renderTo: document.body,
mode: 'local',
store: new Ext.data.ArrayStore({
id: 0,
fields: [
'myId', // numeric value is the key
data: [[1, 'item1'], [2, 'item2']] // data is local
valueField: 'myId',
displayField: 'displayText',
triggerAction: 'all',
emptyText: 'Select one...',
editable: false

Is this specific to FF 3.6?

Sup Jamie.

It's specific to Firefox, although probably not just version 3.6... I think I remember noticing this issue a while back.

Looks like this was fixed in FF 3.6.2 along with a bunch of other problems with target detection on the click event.

This bug is still happening with extjs 3.2.1 (and 3.2.2) and firefox 3.6.8 (on windows 7 32bits) as well as with firefox 3.5.9 (on ubuntu 9.10).

Should the ticket be reopened and can this be fixed in extjs itself ?

Edit : Nevermind my question, another ticket (http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?105042-OPEN-1224-Combobox-click-on-quot-empty-text-quot-issue&highlight=combobox+emptyText+firefox) was opened.
