Here's the stack:

PT__updateChevronTimerCallback@chrome://browser/content/places/browserPlacesViews.js:1205:22
PT_notify@chrome://browser/content/places/browserPlacesViews.js:1470:7
Several getBoundingClientRect calls in there.

Bug 1358719 - Get rid of synchronous layout flush in browserPlacesViews.js.

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/224070/#review230276

Could we use GetBoundsWithoutFlushing at this point, since we already flushed a few rows above?

This for can loop for a lot of entries (even thousands) and I'm a little bit worried about awaiting inside it.

if we can avoid awaiting on documentflushed, could we loop the whole for inside a single requestAnimationFrame?
Again, I'm a little bit worried of enqueuing a thousand of RAF callbacks.

Clearing while waiting for answers... in any case maybe we should delay these to 61 to avoid introducing unexpected flickering or issues in 60.

Looks good to me, though I didn't have a chance to verify in on the field, so please check this doesn't cause unexpected flickering in both non-overflowed and overflowed bookmarks toolbar cases. Other cases to test are when entering/exiting customize mode, and resizing the window.

We don't need both name and label anymore, so you can use the shorthand version here. we usually nodernize this code when we touch it.

nit: I'd remove the above newline since it's related to the previous if.

nit: you can avoid the {return} and just:
await window.promiseDocumentFlushed(
  () => this._rootElt.getBoundingClientRect());

We started using this far more often, I see a lof of code in browser that does this QI+GI, that likely has an overhead cost. What about we add a DOMWindowUtils lazy getter in browser.js, use that here, and file a bug to replace wild usage around?

Or could we just get this on the window object as a chromeonly property, like promiseDocumentFlushed?

I think this will fail on beta. If I remember correctly, the feature to keep track of what code has setup the event listener is causing memory overhead and so is only pref'ed on on Nightly. I would remove the last line of this stack.

nit: I would format it this way:
    BrowserTestUtils.waitForEvent(gToolbar, "transitionend",
                                  e => e.propertyName == "max-height");

Great idea, will file.

Ah, great catch, thanks.
Getting this test to run reliably on automation is kinda tricky, what with the variety of display sizes and resolutions. In particular, I'm having to deal with the fact that on some of our test machines, displays are so small that the new window starts out in sizemode maximized, and so switching sizemodes causes extra reflows. I also have to deal with the overflowable navigation toolbar, and figuring out how many items are going to overflow and cause reflows. :/

I might need a second review on the testing patch once I've had some time to run it in automation and get all greens. Sorry about that.
Filed bug 1444213 about doing something with nsIDOMWindowUtils.
Hey florian and mak, I had to alter these patches somewhat in order to get green from try. Can I carry your r+'s forward?

no problem on my side, I just had a quick look everything looks ok

Yes, thanks for making the lazy resize thing deterministic! It's been in my way too!
