    I noticed a strange behavior when clicking on a RadCombobox. The scenario was this:

    In Firefox, i unknowingly had my browser view zoomed OUT one click. When I clicked the RadCombobox, all my controls on the page, even the fonts zoomed IN one click. When focus was taken off the combobox, my page went back to my original zoom setting(one click OUT).  Upon testing in Internet Explorer, everything stayed nice and smooth with no resizing, but I noticed that all my fonts were larger in IE than FF. So I went back to FF and Zoomed IN one click and everything appeared normal.

    So just a note to anyone who may have experienced controls resizing unexpectedly like this, you can either make sure FireFox is set to the default zoom, or you can add this to your silverlight object

    <param name="EnableAutoZoom" value="true
    <object data="data:application/x-silverlight-2," type="application/x-silverlight-2" 
                width="100%" height="100%">
                ...
                <param name="EnableAutoZoom" value="true" /> 
                ...
            </object> 

    Anyway, problem solved, just thought Id share.

    Hi John,

    Thank you for the heads up! You also give a try to our latest internal build, where we fixed the zoom changing bug in RadComboBox and RadMenu (and actually every other control that uses Popup).
