STR:
* Open Google Drive. They now have a loader animation which is similar to the Android Lollipop loading animation.

What happens:
This animation looks pretty bad in Nightly, while it looks much better in Chrome.

This would really benefit from a more reduced testcase. :-(

It's more about the edges of the circularly animating lines being not so smooth (and hence seems like a gfx issue to me) than about the animation. I'll try to get a testcase. This might also just be happening on Windows, though not sure about that.

When I looked at this yesterday on Windows, I vaguely recall thinking the lines looked jagged. Can't look there right now, but they look smooth on this OS X retina machine... so it might indeed be windows only. If the edges are jagged, even a simple screenshot comparison would be helpful (+ your about:support graphics info)

This looks like there's a rotated square clip on top of the circle's fade-y bits, cutting it off on the 3 filled sides.

I tried a few times, but I'm having a hard time extracting what CSS/HTML Google is using here, and so equally, it's difficult to figure out why that's happening. :-(

Hi Anand,


I didn't managed to reproduce this on the latest release(43.0.2) nor the latest Nightly(46.0a1). The loading animation behaves exactly as on Chrome or IE.

Can you please try to reproduce this on the latest release(43.0.2) and latest Nightly(46.0a1) and provide the results?
When doing this, you could create a new clean Firefox profile, or maybe test in safe mode, as some of this issues may be caused by third party installed addons or custom settings(https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems).


Thanks,
Paul.
