SVG + transform-origin problems in Firefox

I'm building a weather component using the SVGs from this link: http://codepen.io/TechnotronicOz/pen/eokCA
(Here's an example of one of the icons)

<svg

Works beautifully in chrome. I just spent a while trying to debug firefox until I realized that even his example is messed up in that browser. I don't know much about SVGs so if anyone has some tips that would be great. I'm starting to lean towards picking a different set of weather icons. Thanks for the help in advance

Answer

The shapes expect the transform-box property to be fill-box i.e.

transform-box: fill-box

Firefox only supports this if the about:config svg.transform-origin.enabled is set to true (Firefox 41, 42) or svg.transform-box.enabled is set to true (Firefox 43 onwards).

Chrome is wrong here as it is assuming that the origin is the fill-box rather than the view-box as the specification states. This inconsistency with the specification is why it's not enabled in Firefox by default as the specification may change to match Chrome's implementation.
