Issue in selecting option from auto-suggest drop-down using plugin editor.

Hello Team,

I noticed that when I edit the plugin/theme using the editor in the backend, it gives auto-suggest. But when I start typing, I could not select any option from the drop-down (by navigating using up/down arrow keys). It is selected sometimes only if I could manage to press enter at the same time.

  • Component changed from Editor to Administration
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

I'm able to reproduce this in Firefox on macOS.

  1. Navigate to plugin-editor.php.
  2. Place the cursor somewhere in a plugin's PHP code and type "def".
  3. Press the down arrow key. The selection moves down but then immediately moves back again.
