I think that the Firefox behavior is preferable here. To me at least dropdown selects are more similar to `<button>` than to other `<input>` elements. Also, I don't think I'm concerned about not showing outlines in this case, as when the select is focused there's a clear indicator of that (the dropdown).

>  BTW something similar happens with radio buttons, that you can use the keyboard arrows to move between them, however in that case when you click on a radio button neither Chromium or Firefox match :focus-visible.

That's working definitely as expected. That's regular focus navigation which always matches `:focus-visible` and is different to clicks.
