User Agent 
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to http://www.oaa-accessibility.org/example/13/
2. Select the dropdown menu
3. Use the arrow keys to scroll up and down the list for selections

Expected Result:
The JAWS screenreader reads the output of the selection option from the drop-down menu.

Actual Result:
Non-e10s: When arrow keys are pressed, the screenreader simply reads "Alabama/Alaska".
e10s: It just reads "blank"

This issue is still reproducible with the below specs - This continues to happen whether or not e10s is enabled.

When e10s is enabled: It does not recognize the drop-down window
When e10s is disabled: When arrow keys are pressed, the screen reader simply reads "Alabama/Alaska"
