vk.com thumbnails gone wrong

With other browsers I get 4 small thumbnails in a row, with Pale Moon I get huge ones:


Started happening recently, is there a work around?

Report this to VK. It's an error in their CSS (telling a flex item to grow to fit content and setting content of a containing element to 100% will grow it to 100% of the flexbox)

Offending code:

Code: Select all

.PlaylistsSlider.ui_gallery .VideoCard, .PlaylistsSlider .ui_gridsorter_cont > .ui_gridsorter_placeholder 

Code: Select all

flex: 1 0 30%;
(the "1" there means flex-grow: 1 - meaning yes, grow with content)
and containing element sets width/height to 100%:

Code: Select all

.VideoCard__thumb {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    width: 100%; <-- Here and
    height: 100%; <-- Here
    display: -ms-flexbox;
    display: flex;
    -ms-flex-align: center;
    align-items: center;
    -ms-flex-pack: center;
    justify-content: center;
    color: var(--placeholder_icon_foreground_primary);
    line-height: 16px;
if they don't want the flex item to grow, they need to tell it not to grow. :P
