Re: [css-flexbox] Edits to testsuite have broken some submitted tests

Also, while I'm at it:

 (c) the reference case for this test...


...seems to be missing. (clicking "Reference Page" and then "Show
reference" gives me a 404, failing to load this URL:

 (d) This test uses -webkit prefixed CSS, without the corresponding
unprefixed CSS...
...so it fails in non-webkit browsers.  It needs unprefixing.

(Unlike (a) and (b), neither of these tests were submitted by Mozilla;
I'm just mentioning them in this thread since I noticed their breakage
around the same time that I noticed the other breakage.)
