Thanks for your help.

If you tab to the select control, optionally use Alt+down arrow to drop the list open, use the down arrow key to select the desired option, and then press Enter or tab out of the control, does that work?
Or in other words, can we say this is a problem with how your Firefox is handling mouse events...
I did edit my original post, but it seemed to have created another post you can use the arrows and enter, but it doesn't recognize the mouse click on select

The ESR wouldn't work as i need to have the most up to date browser like my customers as we build and design recruitment websites,.
Are there any sites or demo pages online that exhibit this problem that you could provide a link to?
unfortunately not. the issues all stem in the admin areas of sites.
I have had a scan across forums and a few other people have reported it.
its fine in chrome / ie 11 etc and was in version 39
Okay, then I suggest checking for the issue identified by Kohei: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1077854#answer-768317

I'm not sure what you mean about fixing your Firefox and not your site. This sounds like something that would be a scripting issue on your site:
<option>cannot be selected in certain circumstances
<option>element cannot be selected and the parent
<select>element won't be closed, when
Event.preventDefaultis called in a
mouseupevent handler on
<select>or its ancestors. The iButton jQuery plug-in is known to be affected. Mozilla developers have identified the cause and are working on a solution.
