While taking a look into bug 83419 (about fast/transforms/scrollIntoView-
transformed.html) I faced with the following render issue:

When using Element::scrollInToView(true) on blocking elements that have bigger 
child elements with margins webkit and Firefox show different results.

I attached the html file [1] and the render results on Firefox[2] and WebKit[3] 
into the bug, so what's the correct result?

IMO the Firefox behavior seems right, but before trying to fix anything better 
to know if a consensus on what is right exists.

The scrollInToView spec[4] says:

"If the align to top flag is set align the top of the border box of the element 
to be scrolled into view with the top of the scrolling box."
