I mentioned about the benefits of vendor prefixes over a year ago in 
this message.

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2011Apr/0798.html

It was regarding this demo.

http://css-3d.org/flight-of-the-venturer.htm

It seems that I was correct in what I said in April last year (in 
reference to different rendering of transformed elements across 
different UAs). To get Firefox 12 correct, I have to feed it different 
style rules.

#inner {
  /* Reserve for future use. Currently the camera view uses this frame */
  -moz-transform: translateX(-100px); /* hack to have it centered for 
Firefox. Why????? */
}

Should I proceed to debug it by ripping apart the demo and creating a 
test case?
