Cant seem to figure out what is going on with the shipping address drop down selection for checkout. It seems to add a disabled function, but works perfectly when attempting to send to billing address.
here is what it shows. But cant figure out what is disabling it:
<select onchange="if(window.shipping)shipping.setSameAsBilling(false);" title="Country" class="validate-select" id="shipping:country_id" name="shipping[country_id]" disabled=""><option selected="selected" value=""> </option>
Ran across a similar issue, but ours started happening after everything had been functioning properly.
What we found was that in the core_config_data table, for some reason, there came to be an entry in there with a path of "general" (with nothing after it, or maybe "/general/")...
Point is, since it was one of the last entries, Magento treats that as create (in this case overwrite) the XML node "general" in the core_config that it builds, essentially wiping out all other data in that branch of the XML object.
If you find this entry in the table, you should backup the table (always be safe), and remove that entry. Then clear your cache, and you should find that things are back to normal.
We never did identify HOW the entry came to exist in the table, but that was the fix for us.
was hopefull that this would work, as did for many. No record in table. Any other ideas?
