Selector ":hidden" collects selects options in IE, Opera and maybe Safari.

It`s the same problem that was with "tr" tag - browsers (but not FF), calculates <option> size as zero (FF returns actual size of parent <select>). For my opinion "option" is not really hidden tag, so i make a little patch and attached it.

Looking at, IE7,8,9Beta, Operas and Chromes all say that <options> are hidden. Firefox thinks they aren't.

Considering that every browser but Firefox says that it's hidden - it seems like it's the other way around. That being said, I'm not really sure what you're trying to achieve with :hidden/:visible on option elements. It seems like you should probably be using :selected instead. Don't think this is something that we're going to spend a lot of cycles on.
