[Perlfect-search] Search results display popdown form contents

I take it by "popdown form" you mean a <select> input item?
If so, have you made sure that:
 (A) : It is within form tags;
 (B):  You have closed the <option> tags?

So it should look like:

<form name="navigation-dropdown">

<select name="Navigation-Menu">
    <option value="url">Option one</option>
    <option value="url">Option two</option>
</select>

</form>

Hopefully that'll help?
