Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0

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: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh771865(v=vs.85).aspx

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.

Hmm, well, is this in any spec?
