Relative Position set to Images in Tablet/Mobile Preview


I upgraded to WP 6.1 today and the Gutenberg editor appears to now apply a Position: Relative to images in Tablet/Mobile Preview - which I noticed b/c I am using absolute positioned images (via global class settings) for srcset background in a DIV on my site. In Desktop preview, there is no issue - but when switching to tablet and mobile a class is added by the editor to change the position setting. I believe this is related to WP 6.1 bc I did not notice this behavior before today. This can be overcome by setting the positioning on the Image element ID itself - but if applying via Global Class - it gets overridden.

Step-by-step reproduction instructions:

  1. Create a DIV - set to position relative
  2. Add image inside DIV
  3. Create Global Class and apply to Image
  4. Apply the following settings to the Global Class:
    background-size: cover;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    top: 0px;
    left: 0px;
    z-index: -1;
    position: absolute;
    height: 100%;
    width: 100%;
  5. Add Heading insid DIV
  6. Preview in Tablet and Mobile (see results below)

Insert Images, Videos or GIFs
