dojo.lfx.html.highlight() stops abruptly for select elements in firefox

Here is a simple example that works just fine in IE but is broken in firefox.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">

<title>Test Select Animation</title>
    <script src=""></script>

         function doHighlight(dude) {dojo.lfx.html.highlight([dude], [0,0,0], 2000).play();};

    <select id="broken" size="5"><option>broken</option></select>
<div id="working">working</div>


As far as I can tell, there are no error messages displayed.

See #2448

An addendum: IE and Firefox have different display models for the SELECT node. IE will allow changes to the underlying options to filter through to the background of the select itself, but Firefox will not. Both, however, will happily work if the background of the SELECT node itself is modified. The ultimate solution to this problem is to get the dojo.lfx.html._byId method to not treat SELECT nodes as array like, or to change the test so that it does not just use the isArrayLike test to determine whether to process the nodes as an array.

See #2448 for root cause. But this isn't an issue in 0.9 anymore because the fx functions only take a single node as an argument.
