Author functionality reduced in Safari 11

Some standard operations, like opening a dropdown navigation, do not function correctly in the latest Safari version 11.

The Issue

We are discovering that Adobe AEM (aka the "Author environment") is not fully functional when used in the latest Safari , version 11. For example, the little arrow icons do not expand to reveal the dropdown list in Page Properties.

In Safari 11, the Page Properties dropdown list cannot be revealed.

Workaround

We have escalated this issue with the vendor, but do not know when it will be fixed. This latest version of Safari is still very new.

There is no perfect workaround. In the interim, please try an older version of Safari -- 9 and 10 are fully functional -- or use another browser.
