ASP.NET -- Drop Down List goes up. What the heck?

Take a look at the attached image.  This is a simple ASP drop down list (that's a select element for the browser).  For some reason, some browsers (IE and Firefox) show this DDL going up rather than down.  All other DDLs on the page drop down as they should.

You cannot control the Dropdownlist control opening direction.

Also, most of the times it depends on the position of the ddl on the screen.

i.e. If the position is near bottom of your screen and the ddl will open upwards as it cannot be seen if it opens in downward direction. So the control is not given to us.

It is control by IE/ operating system and there is no javascripts to control the opening direction of DDL.
