I need to 'reset' all the dropdowns on a form showing in Jquery-ui dialog.
The following code works with Chrome 38.0.2125.111 and IE 11.0.9600.17358 but NOT with FireFox 33.0.3...
I have two code examples and only use one and comment-out the other. Just wanted to show both...

[Jquery UI Dialog]
var $dialog = $('#myModal').dialog(
         {
             autoOpen: false,
             open: function (event, ui) {

             },
             close: function (event, ui) {
                 $('#form1 select option:first-child').attr('selected', 'selected');

                 $("#form1 select").each(function ()
                 {                     
                     $(this).find('option:first-child').attr("selected", "selected");
                 });
             },
             buttons: [
                 {
                     text: "Clear All",
                     width: "100",
                     click: function () {
                         $('select option:first-child').attr('selected', 'selected');

                         $("#form1 select").each(function () {
                             $(this).find('option:first-child').attr("selected", "selected");
                         });
                     }
                 }
             ]
         });

 <div id="myModal">
                <div>

That works too good, I need the first option to display in each dropdown. Sorry I didn't specify on original post ;)

All selects have blank text area, but dropdown values show on dropdown open.

Since jquery 1.6 prop (property) and attr (attribute) are divided and no longer in the same attr object. I changed my original code to use prop and now it works in Firefox too.
