We'll use this bug to track the work to enable the work done in bug 1325467 by default.
Seems like maybe we should fix bug 1339909 before enabling this? Or are you not going to use that feature?
Andreas, can you take a look at ThrottleTrackingTimeoutsCallback bug 1339909? It looks like Ehsan posted a patch last month, but Ben asked for some changes.

I'd wish we had prefs for this and enable this also in foreground tabs in nightly. That way we'll see hopefully sooner whether this causes regressions.
A pref would be nice. It makes it a lot easier to handle problems in the wild since we can flip it via a system addon without cutting a new release.
Created attachment 8864142 [details] [diff] [review] 0001-Bug-1355311-Set-default-values-for-throttling-backgr.patch Accidentally almost turned on foreground throttling as well. Changed it to be on using an ifdef NIGHTLY_BUILD. With the current setup this is controlled by the hidden prefs and default values: * dom.timeout.tracking_throttling_delay: 30,000 (30 seconds) * dom.min_tracking_timeout_value: if nightly then 10,000 (10 seconds) else dom.min_timeout_value * dom.min_tracking_background_timeout_value: 10,000 (10 seconds)

The throttling will potentially effect web developers, so this change needs to be covered by documentation. For document team: reference this email thread, which is full of very useful information: http://bit.ly/2qe9vhZ

I've added notes (and updated browser compat info) on: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/WindowOrWorkerGlobalScope/setTimeout#Throttling_of_tracking_timeout_scripts https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/WindowOrWorkerGlobalScope/setInterval#Throttling_of_intervals I've also added a note to the Fx55 rel notes page: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Releases/55#DOM_HTML_DOM Let me know if this reads OK, or if you think anything else is required. Thanks!
Backed out for causing crash in mozilla::dom::TimeoutManager::MaybeStartThrottleTrackingTimout (bug 1366812): https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/f9ca97a334296facd2e0ea5582e7f12d0fe70fe4
Relanding because bug 1367025 may have fixed the cause of the crashes.
