Steps to reproduce:

When an SVG g element contains both a title and a shape such as a rect, the content of the title element is not drawn as a tooltip if multi-process Firefox is enabled. Per I would expect the title to be displayed as a tooltip. When multi-process is disabled or the title element is the child of the shape itself, the tooltip is displayed as expected.

this bug occurs in FF nightly 45.0a1 (2015-12-03) and FF Developer Edition 44.0a2 (2015-12-03) on Windows 10 and OS X 10.11

1. Enable multi-process Firefox
2. Open test case:
3. Hover over the red rectangle on the left

Actual results:

No tooltip is displayed over the red rectangle (which has the title element as the first child of the g element), but a tooltip is displayed over the green rectangle (which has the title element as the child of the rect element).

Expected results:

A tooltip should have been displayed when hovering over both rectangles.
The build ID of the nightly I found this in is 20151203053521

fix wrong variable

Patch looks good, but can we pleaase add a test for this as well so that we ensure this doesn't regress again?

Any suggestions as to how I might write a test for this? Writing a complete c++ program, creating a bunch of nsDOMINodes somehow and calling the method seems overkill. I'm not sure how the browser does it? Can I plug into that? There's a remoteBrowserTooltip but I'm not sure that's the right thing or even how to use it if it is.

jwatt, can you help advice on how we could write a mochitest for this?

Seems like this should be possible in principle using DOMWindowUtils and then checking the tooltip text in the parent process, but that seems like it would be quite subject to intermittent failures.

Gijs notes that the new tab tests do something like this (moving tabs around with "real" mouse events) and suggests drilling down from
