May I ask which Firefox version you tested?  I would think that Firefox 
20 and newer would be sending "null" here, and testing on 
http://jsfiddle.net/fbgLg/ suggests that I think correctly.

Since Blink is the only actively-developed browser engine sending "" 
instead of "null" here, it's probably best to just file a bug on Blink 
asking them to follow the spec.
