flex-basis: content; not supported

Reported by, Mar 25 2015 Back to list

Issue description

UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_10_1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/37.0.2062.122 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. add display: flex to parent element (flex container)
2. add flex: 1 1 content; to child (flex item)
3. view page in browser

What is the expected behavior?
the flex item should grow and shrink as expected, similar to a declaration of flex: 1 1 auto;

What went wrong?
the flex declaration - the entire value of the flex property -  is ignored as the content value is not supported.

Did this work before? No
