Description Mounir Lamouri 2011-09-08 19:06:00 UTC
All browsers I've tested have pre.width being a long instead of an unsigned long, the only exception being Firefox. I do not see any reason why the spec requests Gecko's behavior for an obsoleted feature.

We should probably have pre.width being a long in the specs. Gecko will follow.
Comment 1 Mounir Lamouri 2011-09-08 19:07:45 UTC
Simple test case: open the URL, if the alert shows '0' pre.width is an unsigned long. If it shows '-1', it's a long.
