I've seen this problem before, but I'm afraid I can't provide much insight.
I am guessing that the Gecko engine treats elements with overflow:
scroll/auto as iframes instead of components of the same document, and the
object model starts breaking down. To be certain, you may want to consider
using script to cause the drop-down behavior. If HTML is for providing
content, CSS is for providing presentation, and DOM/scripting is for
providing behavior, it might be acceptable to use script for this.

In a post written by Christian Heilmann today (titled Re: [css-d]
Suckerfish/Form select box dilemma) he says:

I'm uncertain about what the iframe hack is, but perhaps this will help.
