In Firefox (at least in Win10), with `<td>` it seems to work ([forked testcase](http://dabblet.com/gist/85ae2a32080e532bb9584e57be1a4792)).

But with positioning `<tr>`s and other table parts there is a problem that at least two implementations (Edge and Blink) actually [don't generate boxes](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/858#issuecomment-303806549) for them. In my opinion, it's rather a bug, because at least the term "row box" [is there](https://drafts.csswg.org/css2/tables.html#table-layout) in the CSS2.x spec, but because positioning table parts (except fixed/sticky positioning of table headers/footers) is not used very often, there was little attention to this issue (except from Mozilla, where they needed that to fix the old annoying bug with positioning things _in_ the cells).
