Description

Changing the size of a <select> object with an onchange event crashes IE11.

For example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
	<select size="2" onchange="document.getElementsByTagName('select')[0].size=1">
		<option selected>click on me</option>
		<option>or me!</option>
	</select>
</body>
</html>

Many IE11 users have been able to reproduce this with 100% reliability.
