Same issue here as on the other dropdown bug. It just seems very odd. It's done in a more normal way in other places, like the attached screenshot taken from another bug report

that is completely unrelated.

Ok, I am not wishing to be rude here but I don't think it's unrelated. That is what a normal dropdown looks like, and we have them in several phpList in other places. These rennet drop-downs however, are not normal.

I have spend the past 10 mins looking at dropdowns in other software and it seems to me that they all work like one of the following:

1) The pre-selected is a "null" and says something like "all" or "none" or "no value"

2) The pre-selected is a setting in it's own right like edit "menu 1" or page "home" or language "English" and there is no null setting.

In this case, we should be 1. So change

"change -- select one

to "none" "

If we want to indicate what the dropdown is for, that should be done some other way like in the text next to it, or in the information box etc.

If we can reach a consensus this can go in quick fix
