User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:53.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/53.0
Build ID: 20170307064827

Steps to reproduce:

Using Canvas + drawImage + scaling + a large image = buggy rendering output.

That happens since Firefox version 52 and as it seems only on OSX.
Firefox Beta (53) and Firefox Nightly (55.0a1) are affected as well.

Here a online test-case:

Just in case it's relevant - Chrome had the same bug in Chrome 54:

Actual results:

Test case results: the upper image is a normal <img> image and correct and the image below a <canvas> with the image drawn downscaled with drawImage into it.

Expected results:

Both images should look similar, not scaled and broken.

Klaus, could you run the tool mozregression to narrow down a regression range in FF52, please.
See for details to install and use it.

Run the command "mozregression --good=51", then for each build launched by the tool, make the test and enter if the build is good or bad. After the run, copy here the final pushlog from the repository mozilla-inbound.

Nice tool - here it's output: 

 7:19.15 INFO: Narrowed nightly regression window from [2016-11-02, 2016-11-05] (3 days) to [2016-11-04, 2016-11-05] (1 days) (~0 steps left)

 7:24.76 ERROR: [SSL: SSLV3_ALERT_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE] sslv3 alert handshake failure (_ssl.c:590)

But is that error at end normal?
No, mozreg should switch to taskcluster and m-i repos after getting pushlog from m-c.

Can you retry with the command:
mozregression --good=2016-11-03 --bad=2016-11-06 --repo=mozilla-inbound

NB: if the initial boundary builds are not good or bad, just enlarge them by 1 day and retry.
Doesn't unfortunately work - the same error happens - here what happens:

macOS-Sierra:~ krpano$ mozregression --good=2016-11-03 --bad=2016-11-06 --repo=mozilla-inbound
You should use a config file. Please use the --write-config command line flag to help you create one.

Btw - I had to install mozregression with the '--ignore-installed six' setting because of a six version problem. Could this be the reason?

It's a python error, probably because the SSL support is old with python 2.7. I think you need to update it with the "pip" command, see:
I'm running this on a stock OSX 10.12.3 with its stock Python 2.7.10 and there nothing of that works...
When trying to update Python's openSSL link show in your links there is always an 'Operation not permitted' error (seems to be related to the OSX sandboxing).

When trying the same on an older OSX 10.9.5 system with Python 2.7.5, the mozregression installation itself works without problems, but therefore running mozregression fails with that error:

'DistributionNotFound(req)  # XXX put more info here pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: colorama==0.3.7'


Sorry, but I think I can't help here anymore, I'm no OSX or Python specialist and have no time to dig into the 
dependency hell of Python... 

Can't somewhere at Mozilla run it?
You would only need to enter this url:

and you would instantly see if it works or not - e.g. 'just seeing two times the same image or not'.

Best regards,
Andrei, could you find someone from QA on OSX (reporter is using OSX 10.12.3) to find a regression range in FF52.
Url to test is
Flags: needinfo?(mail) → needinfo?(andrei.vaida)
That said, when checking the pushlog from m-c in comment #2, I think the regression is due to bug 1309913.
Just as note - this doesn't seems to be OSX version depending. Due my tests this happens on all OSX versions I've tested (10.9.5, 10.11.6 and 10.12.3).

And one another note - Chrome had the SAME bug and there the problem was located in Skia - see here:

Maybe Firefox would only need to merge that fix or update its Skia library...
This is just a simple one-line backport of the upstream fix:

It was already cherry-picked for m55 which we used, but they cherry-picked it after we merged.

This bug has been around since we updated to Skia m55 in FF 52. Since that affects pretty much all our releases, we'll just call bug 1299435 the source of the regression, though the bug could have existed before that (which is not terribly relevant at this point).

This affects all SkiaGL users, so at least Mac and Android by default.
