<h1>Combining on-load animations with <code>:hover</code> animations/transitions</h1>
<p>tl;dr you can’t apply two identical animation declarations to different states of an element, other stuff (anim+differently named identical anim, anim+transition) is fine. Changing other properties works in WebKit but not Firefox. Also check <a href="">Restart CSS Animations</a> on CSS Tricks.</p>
