Attached video output.mp4

When clicking on the "podcasts" link after navigating to https://music.amazon.com/, there is a 200ms flash of white which feels quite disruptive. This is without fission and happens with or without webrender.

There is a video describing the problem attached, and associated profile here if that's useful: https://share.firefox.dev/312lv9a

Ok, so this happens because by the time the paint suppression timer runs, the page is unstyled. So I think we should not unsuppress painting so soon, but detecting when to unsuppress it is an interesting problem... A good heuristic could be whether the background-color of the root element / body is not transparent. Or maybe we should paint the "default" canvas background if the page is loading and the canvas background is transpanent... That'd fix this for dark mode users, but not for everyone so that's not so great.

Actually the page in this case starts getting styled after the load
event, sometimes, but when that happens that also causes a white flash
in other browsers.

See the comments as for this might be unexpected. The tests could be
fixed but seems like footgunny, so for now this seems better.

For future reference, the line causing the events getting dispatched to
the wrong document is the IsPrimaryFramePaintSuppressed call in
PuppetWidget::GetCurrentWidgetListener(), which causes
widget->DispatchEvent from nsContentUtils::SendMouseEvent to dispatch
the event to the wrong page.
