Q: O que significa fixed spectator dropdowns grabbing input focus while closed.?
A: It sounds like someone fixed a computer bug. They describe the bug as 'spectator dropdowns grabbing input focus while closed'

A 'dropdown' is a type of menu where choices drop down when you click on the dropdown (and then go back up when you click on one).

A 'spectator dropdown' is a dropdown that watches something else to possibly set its selection

'Input focus' is the part of the app that responds to keyboard presses

They aren't specific about what 'closed' means, but I suspect it is when the dropdown is in the small 'up' position

For example, the app might have a spot to enter an address with dropdown menus for country and state/province. Perhaps selecting a country changes the options in the state/province menu (so the state/province menu is a spectator dropdown). Then the bug they fixed would be something where selecting a country updates the state/province menu and moves input focus there. The fix would be to leave the input focus on the country menu (perhaps the user missed by a little and wants to use arrow up to fix their country selection).
Q: O que significa spectator?
