Mozilla does not.  Be careful to test browsers in a way that the comment
doesn't cause exactly what you wanted to be ignored to be ignored
because of the CSS error handling rules.  For example, try the following
testcase:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">
<title>CSS Comments test</title>
<style type="text/css">
// This is not a comment.
p { color: red; }
</style>
<p>This paragraph should not be red.</p>
