In some combo boxes, unfortunately when you enter them the item you land on is 
assumed to be your selection. Other than hitting the down arrow key twice or 
three times within a second, the only solution to that seems to be to ask the 
site designer to re-design it, less Java controls perhaps. However, if this 
occurs on all Web sites with a combo box that you visit, it is a problem with 
JAWS7.10 which should be brought to the attention of Freedom Scientific. 
(Personally, The more I hear about 7.10, the less I'm inclined to try it out!)
