Use the keyboard to select web page drop-down menus

Is there some setting in System Preferences I have to change to enable this? I find exactly the opposite when using Safari and it's maddening. Thanks.

There's a system-wide setting. Go to System Preferences->Keyboard and mouse->Keyboard shortcuts panel and select "All the controls", or press control+F7. In addition, you'll see a lot a useful shortcuts, and you can define your own.

I've got full keyboard access set to text boxes and lists only (not all controls) and it really bugs me that Safari doesn't respect this setting. If I wanted to use the keyboard to navigate I'd turn the option on. I want tab to take me through text input fields, not other controls.
