Steps to reproduce:

  1. Use CSS Hyphenation for a sentence
  2. Find out that it is also uses Hyphenation for very short words
  3. Try to find a solution and fail to do so

Actual results:

The hyphenate-limit-chars property is currently not supported in Firefox. It should work as the -ms-hyphenate-limit-chars property in IE/Edge:

Expected results:

The hyphenate-limit-chars property should be supported in Firefox, so developers can decide how many characters a word should have before hyphens are used and how many characters before/after the break should be the minimum.

I've moved the bug to a new component and the guys from there will bet an idea of what should o whit this.

Component: Untriaged → Layout: Text and Fonts
Product: Firefox → Core
Ever confirmed: true
Keywords: feature
Priority: -- → P3

Hmm, well, is this in any spec?
