Scroll wheel closes select box (HTML/JS Project)

In most modern browsers, if a  dropdown list has a scroll bar, the user is allowed to use the mouse wheel to scroll through the dropdown list created by the select/option HTML tags.


However, in my HTML/Javascript AIR app, when I use the mouse wheel over such a select box, it just closes the dropdown list.


How can I restore expected functionality to the dropdown list?


I've noticed that if I click anywhere within the scroll bar prior to using the mouse wheel, the mouse wheel will operate as desired until the dropdown list is closed again. If you just open the dropdown list and attempt to scroll down with the wheel, without clicking anything, the dropdown closes itself.
