I am facing one strange issue with HTML drop downs.

We have deployed drop downs on SharePoint online pages using provided hosted add-in (MVC solution type).

We bind data to these drop-downs using Angular 1.0. Since last Friday when we click on these drop-downs (after page load), these drop-downs remain freeze (disabled), but when I hit F12 or Ctrl+/Ctrl- and then click on these drop-downs, it start showing the values in the drop-down.

I am facing this issue only in Client VM's google chrome, its working fine in Client VM's IE and when we I am accessing the same page outside of Client's VM its not showing the freezing behavior and show values in the drop-down without hitting F12.

Chrome version in client VM is identical to my local machine.

There no deployment happened in past few weeks this issue start occurring all of a sudden.

Please suggest how I can resolve this issue?

Please check if you have JavaScript enabled in your Chrome:

2.At the bottom, click Show advanced settings.

3.In the "Privacy" section, click Content settings.

4.Select Allow all sites to run JavaScript (recommended) in the "JavaScript" section.
