  • This issue can also be seen in this fiddle:

    Both firefox and chrome don’t let the link hitbox and hover state overflow the parent element.

  • I think the issue is slightly different, see

    The inner i elements DO overflow the parent a element hover area and prevent orange and red to hover properly. The green inner i element has pointer-events none but should work without like in FF/C

  • See especially the overlapping slightly paler area in red and orange, the the inner i elements overlap but just in Edge this prevents hover on a to work properly.
