Details

When reftests capture images for comparison, they are rasterized with a device offset of (0,0) resulting in false positives for bugs that only occur with a non-zero device offset.

This could be addressed by more accurately capturing the last rendered frame without re-rasterization or by including chrome in the reftest window that would introduce a device offset in the rasterization.

Bug 1067286 is an example of a regression that could not be tested due to this limitation.
