CSS Animating SVG with CSS Transitions and Transforms Transform Origin in Firefox

From Animating with SVG: FF rotation bug) cx,cy seem to be in viewBox coordinates instead of "px".

Set viewBox to "0 -100 800 400" and rotation is still correct.

If cx,cy were px then changing the viewBox would affect the rotation center

Hi mitchell hunt,

Yep, cx and cy are the center coordinatesβ€”they're not pixel values. But we can use those values in our CSS to set the transform origin in pixels.
