ComboBox: more choices/previous choices not spoken by JAWS

With JAWS 9 and Firefox 2, the more /previous choices entries in the combobox were spoken when they got focus. In Firefox 3 with JAWS 9 or JAWS 10, the more/previous choices are no longer spoken when they get focus. Also, the more/previous choices is not included in the number of list items. For example if you clear the edit field on the first combobox on the test_Combobox.html page, when you arrow down in the list box to the first item, JAWS 10 with Firefox 3 will speak Alabama, 1 of 30. But in this case there are really 31 items including the More choices option. I could live with the more/previous choices not being in the count but they do need to be spoken when they receive focus.

Hmm, well let us know if there's a local solution or if the design of ComboBox needs to be changed to, for example, have no "next choices"/"previous choices" entries in the drop down, ala #4108.

Although if that's the case it couldn't be done by 1.3.

Does this happen in the latest FF nightly?

Closing as fixed since this now works properly in JAWS 10 with FIrefox 3.0.10
