Question Drop Down Menu Selection Won't Refresh Page!

Please Login to Remove!

Short-Version Question: How do you properly select an item in a DROP DOWN MENU so that the site refreshes based on that selection????

Here’s my reasoning for asking this question:

Okay, I’ve got my new BB 8700c set up. I plan to be using my BB predominantly for keeping Track of my Stock Portfolios. I plan on using CBSMarketwatch.com since that was recommended as a pretty descent mobile finance website, and everything I’ve seen indicates that
it true.

I set up two portfolios: one named Ameritrade Account, and one named Prior Stocks. In the CBSMarketwatch.com desktop portfolio manager, you have to select a default portfolio that will appear when you access the site on your handheld device. I selected my Ameritrade Account.

Well, when I access the site on my BB it, of course, shows the Ameritrade Account. It gives you A DROP DOWN BOX (with the little down arrow on the right) allowing the user to select the Prior Stocks Portfolio to display. I click my side scroll wheel when I scroll to the dropdown box and I get a browser menu that includes “Change Option” (among other selections). I select Change Option and the DROP DOWN BOX then “drops down” and lists the Prior
Stocks Portfolio under the Ameritrade account. I click my scroll wheel to select Prior Stocks.

…Then, NOTHING happens…the site does NOT refresh to show the Prior Stocks portfolio. So I click the scroll wheel to get the browser menu and I select Refresh, but the site refreshes with the Ameritrade Account Portfolio, and not the Prior Stocks Portfolio that I selected in the DROP
DOWN MENU.

Question: How do you properly select an item in a DROP DOWN MENU so that the site refreshes based on that selection???? Sorry folks; I just can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong.
