The drop down remains behind.

I don't see this myself, but from the video it looks like the popup is disappearing correctly then reappearing. This could be something specific to the form autocomplete. I notice you have a custom cursor effect though; are you using a regular mouse/trackpad?

Did you try with a Mac? I use a logitech mouse (a normal mouse) and I don't have any custom cursor effect.

Please test this on Firefox 51.  This may be an existing bug rather than a regression.

With 51 release I can't reproduce this because the dropdown doesn't appear when you focus the page, only if you click on username field. On 52.0b1 beta I can reproduce this.

Moving this to XUL Widget, since its not a password manager specific issue.

Neil, can you take a look at this?
Component: Password Manager → XUL Widgets
Flags: needinfo?(enndeakin)

Since I can't reproduce it, I can't really do anything about it. But as I said, it looks specific to the password autocomplete.
Component: XUL Widgets → Autocomplete

Too late for firefox 52, mass-wontfix.
status-firefox52: affected → wontfix
