click EventListener on select box ignored in capturing phase

Opera 7.54 seems to ignore a click EventListener on Select boxes in capturing phase.

The test case containers the smallest code needed to reproduce the bug. A workround is not possible in the capturing phase.

After all this seems not to be a bug in Opera. This bug is actually a bug in FireFox.

"A capturing EventListener will not be triggered by events dispatched directly to the EventTarget upon which it is registered."
