Go to http://demos.jquerymobile.com/1.4.4/filterable/

Find Filter Select and type in something. None of the selects are filtered away.

Tested on Nexus 7 Chrome.


Chrome desktop emulation of Nexus 7 reproduces this issue to some extent. I mean, it does filter, but the last option cannot be hidden.


  1. Type "d". It shows both options D and J.
  2. Type "a". It shows both options A and J.
  3. Type "ab". It shows only option J.

It's as though the last option cannot be hidden.

OK, I've reproduced it fully on Browserstack, on an emulation of a Samsung Galaxy Note II running Android 4.1.


AFAICT the spec says nothing about whether <option> elements with display: none are to be shown when the user opens the <select> or not. This means that there may be inconsistency among browsers.


OK, this doesn't work on IE8 either. Maybe we should remove this demo.


... nor on any other IE.


I guess we cannot claim that the widget filters a select.
