Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0
Build ID: 20170728100358

Steps to reproduce:

1. In Windows, open the Device Manager
2. Disable and re-enable the video driver.

Note: I am using a 4K screen and 200% DPI. While the video driver is disabled, the display changes to a lower resolution and 100% DPI.


Actual results:

Firefox becomes extremely sluggish. Scrolling is very slow; videos will not render (just show a black screen); some things are slow to load and render. Restarting the browser fixes the problem immediately.
