Steps to reproduce:

Set an absolutely positioned fieldset via javascript and the height updates are not rendered unless/until the width is changed.
Click the "height +" button several times then click "width +" button

firefox v68.0.2

Actual results:

No visible response to "height +" clicks. Inspecting the element we see the style is updated on each click. When "width +" clicked the fieldset is rendered with the new height and width.

Expected results:

Each button click should result in a change to the fieldset's size. This is true if the element is positioned relative.

Product: Firefox → Core

Good news, this is already fixed :)

It looks p. plausible that bug 1351924 fixed this. David, do you think a test-case for this particular issue is worth it on top of the tests landed in that bug?

(Given that this was fixed quite a while ago, I didn't actually test
this in the reftest harness prior to the patch, but I did check that the
testcase fails in the browser on Firefox 68 release.)

(Oops, ran more tests than I intended by using the wrong --index to mach try again.)

Note: Like dupe-target-bug 1351924's main patch, we backed this out on beta. (See bug 1586175 for more details)
