Build ID: 20180621125625

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a div.

2. Set two backgrounds on it:

background: linear-gradient(thistle, purple), 
                   linear-gradient(brown, lemonchiffon);

3. Make the text transparent and set

background-clip: text, border-box

Actual results:

The background-clip gets ignored (live test ).

Expected results:

The background layer above should be clipped to the text. This is what happens in Chrome and Edge.

I have tested this report using the latest Nightly and Firefox release build on Windows 10 x64 and OS X 10.12. I was able to reproduce the mentioned behavior using the steps above. When loading the provided test case the background layer should be clipped to text. However, this is not happening as it is in Chrome & Edge.
