[1] In addition to the -moz prefixed support, Gecko 48.0 (Firefox 48.0 / Thunderbird 48.0 / SeaMonkey 2.45) added support for a -webkit prefixed version of the property for web compatibility reasons behind the preference layout.css.prefixes.webkit, defaulting to false. Since Gecko 49.0 (Firefox 49.0 / Thunderbird 49.0 / SeaMonkey 2.46) the preference defaults to true.

Notes  

The edge of the box designated the start for layout purposes depends on the box's orientation:

Horizontal left
Vertical top

The edge opposite to the start is designated the end.

If the direction is set using the element's dir attribute, then the style is ignored.
