javascript: doesn't work when a:active {position:relative} is set on a href on Firefox Android

(Whiteboard: [webcompat])

This is a spin-off of

This is happening on Firefox Android
<a href="javaScript:getContent('press_note.html')">blah</a>

The button is not working until we remove.
a:active {position: relative}
If you make :active applied from the beginning (via devtools), it works as well.

Changing position would triggering a reframe, so probably there is something going wrong with how touch works with a reframe. This could be a event dispatching issue or a layout issue, I'm not sure.
Looked a bit at the code but failed to find any place suspicious...
