Multi-Column layout incorrectly rendered after resizing Firefox window

Hello, I have a
that uses CSS3's "column-width" as follows:
div.article {
    position: absolute;
    height: 100%;
    column-width: 20em;
    -moz-column-width: 20em;
    -webkit-column-width: 20em;

It renders fine (a long text is split in 3 columns, each of 100% height), but when I re-size the Firefox window it sometimes does not split the text in 3 columns, but creates one column of (approx.) 300% height. It happens for both shrinking and expanding the window size.

A good place to ask advice about web development is at the mozillaZine "Web Development/Standards Evangelism" forum.

The helpers at that forum are more knowledgeable about web development issues.
You need to register at the mozillaZine forum site in order to post at that forum.

Such issues can possibly be caused by rounding errors that makes things not fit.

Did you try height 99%?

Thank you. I am pretty sure it's not a "development question", but a "Firefox bug"...
