The scrollbar for <select> appears on the left side with RTL interface. Testcase https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/95157096/85f61cf7/f4l5ag33qq.html Screenshot https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/95157096/85f61cf7/71piv4scj4.png
WFM. It's on the right with the latest Nightly and e10s enabled. Are you running the latest nightly?
Ok, I guess I didn't enable RTL. How do you do that?

Speaking to Ehsan, it seems there are two main points here: 1) The scrollbar should ideally be on the left in a RTL interface. 2) The scrollbar and the dropdown arrow on the select widget should be in alignment. Ehsan's opinion is that having them in alignment outweighs having the scrollbar on the left, and so we could just revert back to the existing non-e10s behaviour (should be a fairly easy fix). Maybe long term we want to actually do the right thing here though, and modify the widget, but that will likely be fairly involved. Axel, what do you think we should do here? I think we should land a patch to move the scrollbar to the right as that should be fairly easy, then track fixing it properly, if that's what we decide it should look like.
I'm not good in RTL beyond the point that I know people that are. CCing a bunch of folks.
