FWIW, Chromium 106 and Safari 16 (both released last month) have full support, according to caniuse:

Hi is there an update on this? I've tried loading in Firefox 108.0.1 and Firefox developer edition 109.0b8 and have been unsuccessful in seeing container queries working. The same websites works fine in chrome and IE.

The implementation of container queries is happening behind the preference layout.css.container-queries.enabled, which you can enable via about:config. That flag is also enabled by default on Firefox Nightly (currently 110.0a1).

Note that this is a meta-issue. The actual implementation happens in the bugs linked to under the "Depends on" label. You can also have a look at the dependency tree.


Thank you Sebastian that has been very helpful!

Is there plans to add this by default to future Firefox browsers? Also do you know if there is a thread or release documentation detailing these plans?

Is there plans to add this by default to future Firefox browsers?

The implementation of the feature is actively been worked on, so yes.

Also do you know if there is a thread or release documentation detailing these plans?

Normally, the people working on a new feature post a note in the group outlining an "Intent to implement" and later an "Intent to ship". Though that didn't happen for container queries, yet, as far as I can see.
Emilio, shouldn't at least the implementation be annouced in the group? And should a bug be created for shipping this feature?
