NVDA+UpArrow reads all values for a combo box when in forms mode, rather
than just the highlighted value.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Browse to any website with a combo box.
  2. Highlight and switch to forms mode.
  3. Press NVDA+UpArrow.

Expected Results:

NVDA should report the currently highlighted value, as it does in other situations of this type.

Actual Results:

NVDA reports all possible values in this combo box, with no indication of which one is selected. NVDA+TAB does however report the correct value.

I've only tested this with Internet Explorer 8 and 9 and it is present with both browsers.

It looks OK in Firefox 13.

It's worth noting that NVDA+upArrow is more for reading the current line in text rather than other controls. However, this is still obviously a bug.
