Popup buttons not behaving properly

iOS & iPadOS
Hi. I'm running IOS 7.01 on a 5S. Popup buttons are not behaving properly, either within one particular app and on Safari. When I double tap the popup button to enter my credit card info, for instance, or to select a category on the BARD website, I cannot advance or go beyond the next or earlier item in the popup. So, in the expiration date, I'm only able to advance to February when starting with January, and only to the second category in a list. After many tries within a transportation ticket-buying app, I managed to flick away from the popup button and flick back to it at least half a dozen times and managed to get to March by flicking up. Has anyone else experienced this difficulty with popup buttons?
I have been testing the popup button issue with the BARD website as well as an app that asks for my credit card info. As mentioned in my last post, I have discovered that I can only navigate one item and then the popup button does not display the next choice. If I turn VoiceOver off and back on again, I can flick up to navigate one more item. Interestingly enough, on my iPad, a tru popup opens and I can flick left and right to navigate the popup for say, the dates of a debit card expiration or the categories on BARD. Have others replicated this popup button issue? It will take quite awhile to get to item 94 in those categories on BARD! Smile. I do hope they fix this!
Hi I have noticed this problem when using my 5S. It seems to be that when you open a Pop-up (combo box) yu can flick up once but as soon as you do the Voiceover focus moves from the pop-up box to somewhere on the screen, sometimes the Done or Next/Previous options or on many occasions just a random word somewhere on the page. It is really annoying as on a lot of occasions, even if you go back to the pop-up it does not work properly and I have noticed on several occasions that although I am flicking up the menu option prior to the one slected shows rather than the next option.
Have you tried navigating by buttons by switching the rotor to buttons to navigate by buttons.
