In Bug 966242 I am planning to get rid of the visual flicker that was the result of emptying out the rule view, grabbing applied styles, then retemplating by waiting to empty the view until the applied styles have been fetched.

However, this is a pretty inefficient way to rebuild the view every time.  Many times a change happens that doesn't result in any change (or a very small change) to the existing rules.

From https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=966242#c5:  We should optimize the rule-view at a finer level, so that we only update the UI elements that need updating.
