Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Compare drop-down options in Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Root Cause

This is not a Pega defect, but rather browser inconsistencies with standard markup.

Mozilla development community has published articles describing this inconsistent behavior especially with <SELECT> and <OPTION> elements, which is the standard HTML Pega generates for pxDropdowns.

Refer the Mozilla documents given below.



Set the <OPTION> padding in CSS explicitly if required.

  /* Tune this to your needs (match your select padding) */
  padding-left: 20px;
