Thanks Paul & Mirko for your responses.
I got around to checking out some demo sites and am not seeing the same problems. My next stop is asking about what might be peculiar about our specific installation.
All the best,

We use ESR (currently 31.4, although I'm aware that 31.6 has been released
-- just not had time to see what they've changed) and have not experienced
the problem (dropdowns) you appear to have. Note that we use Koha 3.8.24
in production, but never found browser problems during testing of 3.16/3.18.
I would also tend to agree that Chrome poses problems, not sure if they're
purely security, but here in Canada our privacy laws (PIPEDA in particular)
are such that we also have not deployed Chrome. We do use Comodo's Dragon
(a "secure" Chrome) for limited browser compatibility checks, but have
noticed that most users appear to prefer Firefox ESR (which I don't think
is fully coordinated with the latest "public" releases -- this whole
question of stable, old stable, new stable, alpha, beta, whatever, is a
jungle of differing opinions ;=}. )
Best -- Paul
