select {
border: 1px solid #808080!important;

This code works for FireFox, but IE stil sets the border of my Select dropdown box to have that default shadow border. I cant see any conflicting issues in my css.

Has anyone had problems with this. Any help much appreciated.

afaik you can't do this in IE. IE uses window control defaults set by the OS which can't be overridden by html/css. :?

I only had IE installed for a couple of hours.. Didn't have a chance to check that, but it sure would be nice if they did change it :)
The way IE handles select/option tags also means that no other html element can be on top of it (like a drop down menu, the drop down menu appears 'under' the select menu), so it's really annoying.
