  • I have reproduced this issue. There may be other ways to reproduce but this is how I have been able to reproduce it.

    The rendering gets messed up when you apply a font in stylesheet on all elements i.e. ‘*’ and have an empty option in select at the top. e.g.

    • {
      font-family:’Segoe UI’, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;


  • In addition to my above note (here is a sample code which produces this issue):

    *{font-family: 'Segoe UI’, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;}
    <option value="volvo">Volvo</option>

  • Once again, in addition to my above note ‘Segoe UI’ seems to be the culprit in my above sample.
