+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1131879 +++ +++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #950133 +++ This bug is to track Thunderbird HWA issues to resolution - whether it's a THunderbird or graphics fix, driver fault, blocklist, etc - so that HWA can potentially be reenabled in Thunderbird. (version 45??) A parallel question, still unanswered, is what current or future Thunderbird function(s) have a visible, measureable benefit from hardware acceleration? No single person can possibly address all these issues - tracking will facilitate getting more people involved in helping with these bugs, and help ensure sure no issues get missed
