<select> dropdowns close right away when using Wacom tablet

An odd issue that is happening only when using my Wacom tablet (which I do use a lot instead of a mouse - helps with RSI) with macos FF: whenever clicking with tablet on a select element, it closes right away, usually also selecting some random item in process. Which is annoying. Reinstalling Wacom drivers didn't help either. Other browsers or native OS controls seem to be unaffected...

Something like this:

Looking at the generated clicks events log (see attached image), it looks like there is some extra click events happening at random locations on the screen after the main click, which causes the <select> to close down again.

What's the best way of troubleshooting and/or reporting this?

On my Windows 7 computer, I had so much trouble with the mouse pad sending false signals, I used an option to disable it when a mouse is detected.

Sorry, should have been more specific - Wacom tablet aka digitizer connected to laptop, using the tablet pen as the input source. Not Wacom Android tablets.
