I think we may want some dedicated testing here, since this sort of change has broken Flash content before.

Chris, is this change targeting Firefox 54? 

Any thoughts on the risk of this breaking stuff? Any suggestions for testing are also welcome as always.

Florin, we will definitely want some QA help! Jim will be working with Stefan to see if we can reuse the same test plan from when we previously enabled Flash async drawing.
