Assuming that is pseudo-style it looks fine.  Therefore I can only
guess that the z-index values aren't being set successfully, because
your screenshot shows what would be rendered if no z-index were

Try grabbing a reference to your dropdown and input elements in IE and
alerting the value of the outerHTML property, see if the z-index has
been applied.  Unless you're not manipulating the style object of the
elements, in which case what are you doing?

You can do this in favelet-fashion directly in the address bar if you
don't want to interfere with the code...
