Tracking protection is an interesting beast. A feature to help users but users think the site is broken. I guess it's something similar to habits. If you put a mask on your face and you have forgotten about it, you may be surprised that people do not want to talk to you.

(a selection of some of the bugs worked on this week).
- issue with MLB site displaying the plays.
- Interesting CSS issue about
max-heighthaving a different behavior in Chrome and Firefox, maybe something related to a known issue. To be confirmed.
- Started to look at issue 722
the contain property, which indicates that the element’s subtree is independent of the rest of the page.
If I understand, this seems like something which would answer many of the complaints we hear from Web developers about CSS isolation. Specifically the layout term:
This value turns on layout containment for the element. This ensures that the containing element is totally opaque for layout purposes; nothing outside can affect its internal layout, and vice versa.
Implemented in Blink. I didn't find an issue on WebKit project (Safari). I didn't find a bug in Mozilla Bugzilla either. Can I use?. Probably no.
