I am using 9780 simulator with OS 126.96.36.1994 with focus-based navigation. In the code I have simple drop down list i.e.
When the drop down list gains focus it pops up the list right away instead of waiting for the user to click on it and pops up the list. I am not certain if I miss anything here or not.
I know that in OS 5 there is a bug https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/WEBAPI-55 but not certain about OS 6.

I've noted the same issue on a 9700 and an 9300 device on OS 6 @ http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Web-Develop
My work around was to create another focusable item above or below the select , capturing the onUp or onDown (ie... x-blackberry-onUp) and jump over the select. Also, catch the onclick event of your hidden focus element and at that point, set the focus on the <select>.
It is a little bit of extra code, but it gets around the onfocus defaults of the select in OS 6.

We have this logged as a bug and we will be looking to see what we can do to correct the issue

Hey guys, additional note...
On the Torch specifically (188.8.131.52), if you switch focus to a select ( blackberry.focus.setFocus('mySelect'); ) it does not follow the same behavior as the non-touch devices. The only way I've been able to show the options of a select on a Torch has been by touching the screen. Clicking the trackpad while focused on the select does not show it's options.
