It appears that Firefox is getting stuck in some kind of infinite loop due to incorrect use of aria-owns attribute. Here’s the W3C spec on aria-owns:

In Select.js, line 879, when isOpen is false, the component assigns this._instancePrefix + '-value' to aria-owns. That value corresponds to a DOM node which is a parent, and thus has a hierarchical relationship, breaking the W3C spec.

If you visit the demo in Chrome ( and inspect the HTML, you’ll see that in the situation when the component would be breaking Firefox, Chrome has intelligently removed the offending aria-owns value.
