Steps to Reproduce

create a dropdown.
for on change run a script doFormSubmit('{URL}&pyActivity=activity&TaskName=taskselected');
try to change values of dropdown with keyboard

Root Cause

Due to several enhancements from PRPC v5.5 to PRPC v7.x several security checks has been implemented and this is causing the issue.


This issue is resolved through the following local change: Instead of calling the function on change of the dropdown value, they can call it on click of a button (a "Go" button for example) placed beside the dropdown.
