This file will demonstrate the bug

Promises microtask queue does not fully process microtasks queued while microtask is running.
According to spec, microtask queue should loop until it is empty.

Why is this bug important?
Promises are often used by developers for scheduling. When they are,
developers assume Promise.resolve() means "execute this function right 
after this script returns". This bug violates this promise.

FF/Edge/Chrome get this right. It'd be great if all browsers worked the same.


 .then(() => {
   console.log("Promise 1");
   return Promise.resolve();
 .then(() => {
   console.log("Promise 2");
window.setTimeout(function() {
}, 0);

Might also be related to Bug #140043. I've attached a test case.
