Same problem for us, with Firefox/Ubuntu and Firefox/Windows too.

Please load about:support and check if "Multiprocess Windows" is enabled.
If so, please load about:config, click through the warning, and then type
browser.tabs.remote in the search box, then change all prefs that starts with
browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false.  (You can double-click on the rows
to toggle the value.)  Then restart the browser (about:support should now say
that Multiprocess is disabled).  Does the dropdown menu work now?

FYI, we did apply what Mats proposed and we haven't seen this problem again for the last month. Though, since the problem is not easily reproducible, we can't say with certainty if it has disappeared because of the new settings or one of the Firefox updates.

Jean, thanks for the feedback.  I'm going to guess this is a bug in our "e10s" implementation
of the <select> dropdown menu then.  Perhaps you can reset those settings now so you get
"Multiprocess Windows" (e10s) again, and then report if the problem comes back?  Thanks!

BTW, does the problem affect ALL sites?
For example, does the problem occur with the following testcase?
data:text/html,<select><option>hello
This is a pretty serious regression for <select> in e10s-enabled builds.
Someone needs to look into this, and the other e10-select issues (bug 1154677) as well.

Tested this case on Win32 (FF 53.0.2) and could not reproduce:
data:text/html,<select><option>hello<option>hello1<option>hello2<option>hello3<option>hello4

Cannot reproduce on Win10 (FF 56 nightly), either.
