FireFox 33.0.3 and Input Type Select option:selected Not Working?

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");
                         });
                     }
                 }
             ]
         });

                click: function () {
                         $("#form1 select").val("");

                     }

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.
leakim971PluritechnicianCommented:

<select class="form-control" id="class" name="class">
                                            <option value="class">Any</option>
                                            <option value="class">Article</option>
                                            <option value="class">Conjunction</option>

Line one, all elements show text when click down arrow.

I don't understand what you mean
I think you should open a new question and close this one as your initial requirement (resetting a dropdown) work fine in firefox now
WorknHardrAuthor Commented:
How bout this: $("#form1 select").prop('selectedIndex', 0);
leakim971PluritechnicianCommented:
what is the difference?
WorknHardrAuthor Commented:
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.
