If I'm doing something like <select style="text-align: right;"> … options … </select> the text content is still align to the left.
Whatever I'm trying to do, with css rules on select or options it always aligns to the left.
It doesnt work neither on latest Chrome but it does with Firefox…

Latest WebKit, Safari and Chrome failed on this but this works on both Firefox and Opera Mac versions.

Somewhat surprisingly, I cannot find an exact duplicate for this. There are bug 38780 and bug 19785 though.

Yeah I searched a bit and was surprised too...

Based on mitz's comment in bug 19785 that "We are not going to center or justify menu items on Mac OS X", should this not be closed as WONTFIX?

Any update? This is really painful to be blocked for such things.
