The two most frustating bugs I have find in MathML rendering are :
1) bad rendering of line breaks (<mspace linebreak="newline" />), see W3C sample.
2) bad rendering of square root extension (may be font related).
Steps to Reproduce:
1.any use of <mspace linebreak="newline" /> in any expression is ignored.
no line break, no usable workaround found.
display linebreak in math expression.
This prevents the use of any long math expression, hand cutting the expression is not ran option, specially in tables.

Parsing of linebreak attribute
I think we can first work on the linebreak="newline" since it is likely to be the most useful / simplest to implement. Any idea about how to force a newline in a MathML formula?
Finally I have been able to force a new line using NS_INLINE_LINE_BREAK_AFTER.
NS_FRAME_SET_TRUNCATION(aStatus, aReflowState, aDesiredSize);
+ if (mLineBreak == LINEBREAK_NEWLINE)
+ aStatus = NS_INLINE_LINE_BREAK_AFTER(aStatus);
I don't think a support for other values than "newline" is really necessary since it is said in MathML3 WD that controlling linebreaking on <mo/> is preferred. Maybe I should modify my patch not to parse these extra values.

Actually it seems a bit more complicated... Currently Mozilla can not linebreak within <mrow>:

linebreaking is currently only possible at the level of the math element. Although the patch allows to force linebreaking, it is still impossible to break deeper (in the MathML testsuite, we are inside a mrow). Fixing the bug will be more complicated that I initially thought. I don't plan to work on it for the moment.
The MathML 3 says
"Linebreaking was originally specified on mspace in MathML2, but controlling linebreaking on mo is to be preferred starting with MathML 3."
I don't know if it's really worth implementing linebreaking on mspace, given that this is probably going to become obsolete.
So I think we should either resolve this bug as WONTFIX or as a DUPLICATE of bug 534962.
