"Sticky" Dropdowns

This is awesome. I just have one ?... when selecting the 2nd choice, it's a little slow... sticky. And I have to click a few times to get it to select and move on. Am I missing something?

I'm guessing that this is an instance where there are 20 or more values in your dropdown. SharePoint uses a hybrid control for this. See my blog post here:

eek. Yup That's it. Can I fix it?

I've seen some scripts out there to do the conversion, but I've never tried them. (I've thought about adding something into SPServices, as it's not an unusual request.)

Take a look at Dan Blaker's comment here:
idea how well it works.

I noticed this issue is not in firefox.

And also havning another issue is, when using SPServices, for this sticky dropdowns, the validation sometimes it works. sometimes doesn't.

Anything I need to consider?
