Steps to reproduce:

Here is a simple code to reproduce. I kept the wekbit prefix so we can compare with Chrome
HtML: <div class="box">some text</div>
CSS:
.box {
font-size:40px;
color:transparent;
background-image:
linear-gradient(red,red),
linear-gradient(yellow,yellow);
-webkit-background-clip:
text,
padding-box;
background-clip:
text,
padding-box;
}

A jsfiddle link: https://jsfiddle.net/wx3v5ct9/

Actual results:

The actual result is a red only background.

Expected results:

We should see a yellow background and the text in red. It works fine on Chrome.
It also works fine if the text layer is at the bottom, but we have to reduce the top layer to see it.
