When trying attachment 8735300 [details] with Firefox 52.0a1 buildID=20161017030209:

- an horizontal scrollbar is rendered
- "abcd" text is accessible
- "abcd" text is not visible at initial page load: you must use the horizontal scrollbar to see it
- the horizontal scrollbar thumb is not draggable (we have encountered and reported this symptom in other bug reports)
