jQuery SlideDown Flickering in Firefox

once more a jQuery, Firefox flickering issue. (no flickering in IE6/7/8, Safari)

I uploaded an example page here:

There are two div containers. The inner div is the one I'm hiding. The outer one is the wraping container with the style elements. I found the flicker only occur with the selectbox. Without the SelectBox there is no flickering.

But thats not all:

In this case I selected a lower "option" - as you can see, the flicker disappears. The same is happending, when there are less options in total. (less then about 20)

The only workaround I found is deleting the selectbox :)

Seems very strange to me.

Any ideas, why this is happening?

I've tested the examples provided in FireFox 3.6.8 both with and without the select-box being included. In both cases I experienced the same experience.

I've also tested in Safari 5.02 and Chrome and the same animated effect (without flickering) is encountered.

I'm closing this ticket for now but if you're able to provide additional information regarding the browser and platform version used to verify the behavior described, please feel free to re-open at a later date.

thanks for the reply.

I tested it in Firefox 3.6.13

Just tested it again: its flickering for me.

But if there is no flickering in Firefox 3.6.8, I would assume its a bug in Firefox, right?!
