Well, y'know, I used to do QA and product testing... for an early multiplayer online gaming company!
Getting to the point:
For a store with Configuration > Customer details >
State = True
State - Always display as pulldown = True
Procedure to reproduce:
1) User creates an account but neglects to select state from the drop list before hitting Submit.
2) Error informs user to select a state from drop list.
3) User selects state, then hits Submit.
4) Error popup says * Your state must contain a minimum of 2 characters.
"Fatal" condition ensues which can only be rectified by closing and reopening the browser window, and remember to choose state from drop list before hitting Submit.
I hope this helps!
