To learn more about the regressing test, please see: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Buildbot/Talos/Tests#tps

Reproducing and debugging the regression:
If you would like to re-run this Talos test on a potential fix, use try with the following syntax:
try: -b o -p win32 -u none -t g2,svgr  # add "mozharness: --spsProfile" to generate profile data

To run the test locally and do a more in-depth investigation, first set up a local Talos environment:
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Buildbot/Talos/Running#Running_locally_-_Source_Code

Then run the following command from the directory where you set up Talos:
talos --develop -e <path>/firefox -a tps

Making a decision:
As the patch author we need your feedback to help us handle this regression.
*** Please let us know your plans by Monday, or the offending patch will be backed out! ***

We switched to using GDI for opaque surfaces for e10s. We are already using this for non-e10s and we have to use it for e10s in order to have subpixel AA. Some performance characteristic of the Cairo GDI backend are different, this change simply makes our performance characteristics in this area consistent with non-e10s.
