:root element grows to fit contents [BG] (stretches)
When the HTML has content that extends outside of its content area the HTML element's frame is getting sized as wide as the content. This should not happen. The content that overflows should be subject to the 'overflow' policy of the parent element. STEPS TO REPRODUCE: View the attachements. EXPECTED RESULTS: The outer blue border (the HTML element) should be the width of the viewport. ACTUAL RESULTS: The outer blue border goes off theright hand side of the window. That's not how it should work in CSS. Because the HMTL's width is specified as 'auto' it is computed based on the viewport width, and that is the final value. Regardless of whether content overflows. This broke out of bug 35681.
See bug 15405 for the vertical case.
*** Bug 35681 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Is this the same problem as described in Bug 36338 (text wraps beyond window if HR width is larger than window)? Just want to make sure because it was marked a duplicate of Bug 35681 (the originator of this one) and it's still not fixed. If it is the same, the very simple test case there may be helpful.
Bug 36338 is fixed.
