Favorite lists don't line up on the home page

In Firefox 46.0, when I look at the "Favorite Lists" module on the home page > list page, the first row of items goes horizontally across the screen, but subsequent items go vertically:

If I keep favoriting lists until I have a multiple of 6 (the number that fit in one horizontal row), the second row goes horizontal and looks normal:

If I favorite more lists, they go vertically down the page until I have another multiple of 6.

UPDATE: I zoomed way out on my browser to take a screenshot. When I reloaded the home page, I now fit 7 items across. The module is exhibiting the same behavior, but with multiples of 7 now instead of 6.

Also, the "Lists You've Started" module has the same problem, but I couldn't tell before because I've started exactly 6 lists.

I can confirm that I'm seeing this as well, on both Firefox and Chrome, Mac OSX.

bump. This is still happening.

God I hate this algorithm.

Fixed. I'm worried about downstream effects, but it should be good.

I'm having this same problem again.
I'll post a screenshot when I have a moment, but currently I have 4 lists favorited and they go vertically down the page.

ETA: I'm currently using Firefox 52.7.3.
I am *NOT* seeing this issue on my phone, using Chrome.

>7 norabelle414: Yeah, I'm not seeing this on Firefox (60.0.1) on my Mac. Try clearing your browsing data?

>8 lorannen: I cleared browsing data, and I tried a private window, and they're still showing vertically.

I also tried Internet Explorer 11.1088 and they are showing vertically there as well.
(Both Firefox and IE on Windows 10)

>9 norabelle414: Sigh, thanks. I'll test on browserstack tomorrow to confirm other OS/browser combos that might be affected, then flag down Tim, since he was able to fix this before.

bump, still happening in Chrome and IE on Windows 10, but not in Chrome on Android
