SELECT won't open if a kendo context menu is applied to it (on mobile browsers)

When a kendoContextMenu is applied to a combobox (html tag select) you are not able to show the select options by tapping it. The behaviour is on mobile browser only (tested iPad and Google Chrome developer tools with device toolbar enabled).

I reproduced the issue in telerik dojo, here is the code.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <base href="https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/menu/context-menu">
    <style>html { font-size: 14px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; }</style>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2021.1.330/styles/kendo.common-bootstrap.min.css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2021.1.330/styles/kendo.bootstrap.min.css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2021.1.330/styles/kendo.bootstrap.mobile.min.css" />

    <script src="https://kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2021.1.330/js/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script src="https://kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2021.1.330/js/kendo.all.min.js"></script>

    <div id="example">
        <option>Opzione 1</option>
        <option>Opzione 2</option>
        <option>Opzione 3</option>
    <ul id="menu">
            <img src="../content/web/toolbar/reply.png" /> Reply
    $(document).ready(function() {
        setTimeout(function () {
            var initMenu = function () {
                menu = $("#menu").kendoContextMenu({
                    target: "select",
                    select: function(e) {
                        // Do something on select

        }, 0);

I was able to replicate the undesired behavior with Chrome on Android and logged it our public Github repo where you could track its status:


This issue is also visible in our Public Feedback portal where you could vote for raising its priority:


You to consider attaching the menu to another element different than the select, for example using nav bar: 


I hope this helps.
