I am afraid this is still not happening in Firefox.
As Fram pointed out, "Example: Contra (album) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contra_(album)?veaction=edit ], go to the "professional ratings", and explore. Parameters "rev10score" or "rev2score" do not indicate that a second line follows: parameters "rev3score" and "rev5score" give a sudden scrollbar when you click in them, because they are longer than 2 lines."

Doesn't appear fixed. In fact, the parameters don't seem to expand at all, and do not have vertical scrollbars.

The underlying issue is that Firefox does not support the DOMNodeInsertedIntoDocument event, which we rely on to do the initial size adjustment. The event is actually deprecated, and we're planning to replace it with something else (T64174), so I'll mark that as another blocker.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
