select drop down does not work as Tab name in non-WebKit browsers

jQuery: 1.7.2 and 1.9.1

browsers: Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer

When clicking and giving the select focus, the options are displayed, but not selectable. When clicking with the select element already having the focus, the options are not displayed.

Having a select element as the tab name only has selectable values in Safari and Chrome. Allow all browsers to use the select element as intended.
