Some combo boxes have always needed the control key held but of course you have no idea which it will be till you test it.
If this no longer works on Chrome it needs to be reported.

I personally find problems with combo boxes on chrome.
The best way to focus on the combo box with chrome is to go to the button
or link next to it and press shift+tab to focus it. Or if you go to the
previous element you just press tab to get focus to it.
But for some combo boxes which activate the item as soon as you arrow to it
it is difficult to use.
An example is the forum on website.
The combobox to choose forum category is difficult with chrome. With
firefox as far as I know it works well.

If you mean "what does rc3 stand for?" the answer is "release candidate
3" - in other words, it's a version which is a candidate for the final
version, provided no problems are found with it. There were obviously
previous versions (rc1 and rc2) which did have problems, so they got
another candidate released.

And there was one time when the release itself needed an update to
version xxxx.x.x as well.

Hi everyone,

They say the best things come in threes and now NVDA 2017.4rc3 is
available for testing! Coincidence? Probably, but in any case, this
release fixes performance issues in applications such as MIRC which
a lot of text to the screen. For the full details of what is new,
