It's actually not entirely Gecko-specific.

Consider a display:none iframe.  How should viewport-size-related media 
queries be evaluated in such a thing?  The specs don't define it, as far 
as I can tell.  In fact, the specs don't actually define anything useful 
for the viewport of a framed document at all, as far as I can see.  CSS 
just assumes a viewport exists, and HTML doesn't define anything about 
frames setting up a viewport for the document inside them...

But say they defined it.  How would the viewport of a display:none 
iframe be defined, exactly?

Last I checked, UAs just end up doing wildly different things in this
