In Firefox, the post-transform area of an element contributes to the
"scrollable overflow area" of its parent. This allows the user to scroll
transformed objects into view. This seems desirable to me.

they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures
every day to see if what Paul said was true." [Acts 17:11]
