Using the GPU process has many advantages. If there are crashes in WebRender, GPU drivers, or other instability, we can avoid a crash to the user. While this seems to work well with basic compositing, there are appear to be races when we use OpenGL or WebRender compositing. This bug tracks bugs blocking turning on the GPU process on Linux. It will be disabled in bug 1653443.

What we need for bug 1129492 is out-of-process WebGL, which means either this (and bug 1654957) or bug 1654945.

What we need for bug 1129492 is out-of-process WebGL, which means either this (and bug 1654957) or bug 1654945.

Bug 1654957 has been fixed in Fx81.

Bug 1654945 was closed a dupe of bug 1669381, which was fixed last week in Fx83.
