I've never encountered a use-case where the Firefox implementation would be more sensible or useful than the Chrome implementation. In a common use case like a card grid item's margin-top matching the grid's horizontal spacing, with the Chrome implementation I can use `margin-top: 2%;` whereas with the Firefox implementation I need to do something that feels hacky, like `margin-top: calc( 92vw / 50 );` (this example presumes the card grid is 92vw wide, to get around the writers of the Flexbox spec saying that percentage margins are a bad thing but not stating why).
