Breakdown: Windows Hi
DPI support for Firefox front-end
HighDPI (aka high pixels-per-inch) displays are becoming increasingly common. Perhaps most well-known are Apple's "Retina" displays, at ~220dpi (vs. ~96dpi for normal displays). HiDPI displays are becoming increasingly common on PC tablet, notebooks, and even external monitors. Support for HiDPI is important because otherwise parts of the browser will simply be scaled to the correct physical size, which looks ugly. Users should expect a refined visual appearance that takes advantage of their hardware's display abilities. Scaling can be ugly even when simply pixel-doubling (as non-Retina apps do on OS X), and Windows will be particularly challenging due to the number of scaling factors supported.
