    • Seeing as how this page does not list when this issue was reported and what the fix is, I would like to report on 07-09-2016 (EU format) that the fix does not work and the reported “fixed” is false.

      I would upload a screen snippet showing several option elements with attributes disabled="disabled", they are shown.

      Also, those same elements may have the class hidden added. hidden contains CSS display: none !important;, however, this also has no effect.

    • With IE11 don’t work :(

    • This is still an issue with version 11.0.9600.18524.
      Update Versions: 11.0.37 (KB3197655)
      Our organization of ~5,000 employees uses almost exclusively IE11. We have some IE9 versions out there. I am trying to use Display: none; and Display: block; in a dropdownlist and it’s not working. I have a very simple page like the jsfiddle that Davide M shared. I tried his jsfiddle in IE11 and it does NOT work. If there is a work around, please post it here as it’s a real headache for us. Thanks!!!

    • When i test it in edge on 14393.726 at Feb 16 2017,it is fixed ;
      But , there is still some more space on alerting box:
      there are 4 items and 5 items space

    • Thanks @Crash B. - we not using Edge yet - it’s too new and if there’s a fix coming or available for IE11 I’d love to know about it so we can install and test. Thanks.
