I think reproducing this bug is more complicated than the simple reproducer in the description. It seems to involve more than one <input type="file"> per form. I think it involves several <input> tags, and several <div> tags, with one or more <input> per <div>. All <div> sections are initially hidden. Then, reveal all <div> sections, put values in the <input> tags, hide all, reveal all. One or all <input> values will be initialized. If someone is still interested in assessing this report, I will make available the web pages involved. Reproducing involves selecting values from a database, then selecting the appropriate page.
Jeff, could you make it available?

It works fine for me in Firefox 50 on Linux, so I suspect this bug has been fixed. Please test again in a recent Firefox and reopen the bug if the problem still occurs for you. Thanks!
