I see, now it makes sense why many people suggest using  -moz-inline-box instead of inline-block.

Perhaps it would be good to fix the MDC pages (or make https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/display more specific).

There definitely was a lot of confusion.

-moz-box is the new display type described in http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-flexbox/ ; -moz-inline-box is the inline version of it (very rarely used by XUL authors, but more commonly used as a workaround for the lack of inline-block support before we supported inline-block).
