max-content width of wrapped column flexbox incorrect [specifically for nested flexbox]
Project Member Reported by firstname.lastname@example.org, Feb 21 2016
Version: 50.0.2655.0 OS: Windows 10 Test case at https://jsbin.com/pumuwazise/edit?html,output According to Tab, my expectations of the gray box appearing after the third column are correct per spec. Apparently Safari does this as I expected: https://twitter.com/_sjama_/status/701204468004737025 https://twitter.com/apaprocki/status/701202029994184708 Edge and Firefox behave as Chrome does and show the gray box after the first column.

Hmm this is an interesting variant of bug 507397 (it doesn't require a nested flexbox) It's very strange that Safari handles this correctly though. It seems like their corresponding code, http://trac.webkit.org/browser/trunk/Source/WebCore/rendering/RenderFlexibleBox.cpp#L667, also uses maxPreferredLogicalWidth and should have the same issue Oh, their preferred width calculation is messed up: http://trac.webkit.org/browser/trunk/Source/WebCore/rendering/RenderFlexibleBox.cpp#L667 119 // For multiline, the max preferred width is if you never break between items. 120 maxLogicalWidth += maxPreferredLogicalWidth; That code calculates if you *always* break between items!! We fixed that in bug 247963 , but we can't handle this case. We could handle this better in the specific case of a nested flexbox, but in general this is hard.

All browsers seem to agree on current behavior. Closing.
