> The issue is with the "left: -1e+8px;" used by jQuery.ui This has never been supported in Gecko. It's not valid CSS, though there has been talk of adding such syntax to CSS, maybe.
So in other words, if you're seeing a behavior change that change is caused by something else changing, not the state of support of scientific notation in CSS.
Tested with Firefox Nightly build 15.0a1 => OK, it's working. Stange !
> but why with Firefox <12 this CSS rule works Presumably because there are other CSS rules involved? I'll take a look to see what's going on here; thanks for the testcase!
OK. The initial behavior change here was in the range http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=34572943a3e4&tochange=f4049f65efc6 Then a few days again, in the range http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=0c78207fc93f&tochange=c00a9c1940c5 , the behavior changed back. Mats, your changes to overflow stuff in the first range look relevant, but I'm not sure anything in the second range is jumping out at me.... Note that the CSS I'm seeing has the "-9999999px" thing, not the "-1e+8px" thing....

This has been fixed in latest builds of Fx13 and later (bug 749935).
