Steps to reproduce:

Created a select field with all options coming from a database, all in lower case. Added CSS text-transform to capitalize the text displayed.

Actual results:

Only the selected option is capitalized, all other (unselected) options remain in lower case. This occurs when selecting just the select field, and selecting each option within.

The same error occurs for all text-transform values.

Expected results:

All options, selected or not, should be transformed according to the property value in use.
I can reproduce the problem on Windows10 Nightly61.0a1 x64.
If disabled e10s, the problem is gone.

This is essentially the same issue as bug 1350258, just with another property.

The same applies to many other properties you might apply to the <select> ... e.g. try font-weight:bold and font-style:italic.
