I believe this is known behaviour when using the "Windows Classic" theme
in XP.

Could this be your situation?

Subject: Strange behavior when opening frop down lists in dialog boxes 

Good morning all,

FM 7.0 Windows XP

This strange thing is happening in dialog boxes. I wonder if it has
always been this way (not logical) and I never noticed or this is some
new. weird, skewed behavior.
When first  opening a dialog (for instance, the Character Designer) it
takes more than one click on an arrow to open a drop down list (the font
list, for instance). In fact, in fact it takes about 3 clicks:
Click 1 - nothing happens
Click 2 - the field is now in focus
Click 3 - drop down list, well...drops down.

After this intial 3 click process, any other drop down menu in the
dialog box opens with the normal one click.
As long as the dialog box stays open the 3 click operation does not
return. However, after closing the dialog box and opening it again,  3
clicks to open a drop down list are necessary.

This, of course, slows down the work pace and it is a pity to add
extraneous mouse clicks to over worked hands.

Any guesses as how to take care of this annoying problem?
