Double Click Select/Option control in Firefox

I have a created a dynamic screen editor where the user can add fields to a screen and move them around.  These can be text boxes, check boxes or a drop down list (select/option).  I am using jQuery and I have added the following:

        $('[PT_TYPE]').dblclick(function ()
            // This sets the system into edit mode for this element.

Open in new window

The problem is that this works fine in all web browsers but Firefox.  I can't get it to recognize the double click on the dropdown lists.  Any suggestions?

Do you have a link so we can test it? Or even a sample of the html code that does work, and that does not ?

select elements do not respond to 'dblclick' from what I've researched, but they will fire on ondblclick (I've only tested with multiple set on the select, and dbl clicking options.. )
