Firefox does not support overflow on fieldset

And yes, this may be an official bug from… 2004 but I stumbled upon it just yesterday!

[UPDATE, July 27, 2014] This bug has been fixed on version 28 of Firefox. Well done!

There is no way a front-end developer can be aware of each and every one of the confirmed bugs of every browser — we only know the most important or relatively new ones. Anyway, you should be aware that Firefox does not support any value of the overflowproperty on <fieldset>, except visible which is the default (example). If you need to hide the contents of a <fieldset> you need to wrap them inside a <div>.
