Not really, the BODY element does not have a height of 100% so it should not appear at the bottom of the screen. ->INVALID
Applying it to the HTML or :root gives me the same problem
That is because the HTML element does not have a height of 100% as well.
Yes but it still doesn't work when applying min-height: 100% or height: 100% on the body element
Because then the BODY element will get the height of HTML element which is still auto and not 100% ;-) However, bugzilla is bug triaging system, not a user forum to ask questions about CSS.
