As author of one of the patches included in that push, we need your help to address this regression.

as a note, this is pgo only, we do not see this on opt.

::dao, would you have any ideas why this test might regress after your push?
Flags: needinfo?(dao+bmo)
The change itself seems innocent, i.e. changing the border radius from 2px to 4px shouldn't be /significantly/ more expensive. But any change in the primary UI will naturally affect the PGO profile causing different areas of code to get optimized. We can't control this directly.
