User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:34.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/34.0
Build ID: 20141023111813

Steps to reproduce:

* Go to and select the Gameday option for an ongoing game.
* The Box/Plays/Video/Field/Color box on the right of the screen does not render correctly (see screenshots).

Actual results:

The Box/Plays/Video/Field/Color box on the right of the screen does not render correctly.  The contents of the box appear to be overwritten in the left-most column while the other columns are not rendered where they should be and the center of the table is transparent. See screenshot

Expected results:

The box should render correctly (as it does in Firefox 31).
Here is what the problem area should be rendered as.
This problem is affecting Firefox 34 & 35.  It rendered correctly in Firefox 31 (I haven't tried 32 or 33).
Sorry but this Gameday mode on this website is not obvious.
Could you post directly the URL to a page showing this issue, please.

I tried a gameday like

But I don't see all the options "Box/Plays/Video/Field/Color" you have.

I tried to reduce the testcase, maybe we can reduce more.
In FF33, you see the Firefox logo, not in FF34+.
Moving to Tech Evangelism. Based on the attached testcase, the site authors need to replace these lines:
>   flex: 1 0 auto;
>   width: 300%;

...with this:
>   flex: 1 0 300%;

Alternately, they can insert the line "flex: 1 0 main-size;" right after "flex: 1 0 auto;".

(Background: The flexbox spec changed what "auto" does in this context, and we're the only browser to have implemented it so far. "main-size" is the new keyword that means what "auto" used to mean here. And it really just means "use the value of the width property" [and 'width' has no other effects here], which is why the author really can just fold it all into one line, if they like.)

Version: 34 Branch → Trunk
Not tracking this tech evangelism bug, will send this bug report to the site maintainers to let them know.
There's a chance that the CSSWG will resolve to change/revert the behavior in question this week (at TPAC, during flexbox discussions), so we should perhaps wait a few days before reaching out to site maintainers.
Daniel, status?

As suspected in comment 12, the "main-size" keyword rename was reverted in the spec, so we've removed it as well (bug 1093316), which means there's nothing to do here. Our behavior is effectively restored to a pre-regression-range state (from the range in comment 6).

I'm resolving this as WORKSFORME, since while this *was* a tech evang bug, no change is needed anymore.
