Hi, 

I have tested this on Mac OS X 10.10 MacBook Pro with Firefox Nightly 46.0a1 and I can reproduce this problem, on chrome it works. I have notice this message "Apple has not yet published specs for an accessibility API on OS X" the test is from here:https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/describecomponents.cgi?product=Core  
This problem is supported by Firefox?
