>>>   My Info:   Win7_64, Nightly 49, 32bit, ID 20160526082509
STR_1:
1. Disable HWA, restart the browser
2. Open http://js1k.com/2014-dragons/demo/1670
3. Enable HWA, restart the browser
4. Open http://js1k.com/2014-dragons/demo/1670

AR:
 Step 2 - The demo is not smooth, it's more laggy on Firefox than on GoogleChrome
 Step 4 - The demo is unimaginably more laggy on Firefox with HWA enabled than on GoogleChrome
ER:  Either X or Y or X+Y
 X) Step 2 - the demo should be smooth
 Y) Step 4 - the demo should be smooth

Note:
 It seems that the accurate description is "This js1k demo is more laggy on Firefox, way more laggy
 with e10s/apz enabled, unimaginably more laggy with HWA enabled", but I had not time to check
 e10s/apz thing. You do this.
 Also, bump this bug, and I'll attach troubleshooting data (currently I have no means to do that)

I have managed to reproduce this issue on the latest Firefox (50.1.0) release and latest Nightly (53.0a1) build with hardware acceleration on. The animation is pretty leggy. 
The issue in not reproducible if I disable the hardware acceleration, the animation is smooth.
