How to enable 'flex' in FF 18.0?

Posted

In this article: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/CSS/Using_CSS_flexible_boxes The authors state that I can enable flexible box support in FF 18.0 through the 'about:config' screen. I just did it but 'display: flex' still doesn't work (and works fine in Chrome).

Is the notation different? Am I doing anything wrong?

Doesn't seem to be working in Firefox 18 yet, but it does work in Firefox 19 and later.
In Nightly 21.0a1 the pref is enabled by default and in Aurora (I still have 19.0a2) it works after flipping the pref, so the next beta 19.0 should work.
