I mentioned this in Bug 1695806, but I think it's worth filing a separate bug to make sure this gets properly triaged.


ER: The content of the remote frame should look the same as without fission
AR: The content of the remote frame is zoomed out

When I print the same page as PDF with Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.15; rv:88.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/88.0 ID:20210312033752 the remote frames content is zoomed in. So maybe it's system / platform dependent what actually happens?

Summary: Remote frames are zoomed out when printing to PDF → Remote frames are zoomed in or out when printing to PDF

So I dug into this a bit and I'm pretty sure that this is due to the various page scales etc not applying to the remote iframe. So somewhat a Graphics issue.

This is very visible on a test-case like this. The red area should always be half of the content area, but it is scaled up because we don't seem to account for the page scale transform that shrinks the iframe.

Tim, do you happen to know how do we compute effective scales for remote content like this?

Flags: needinfo?(emilio) → needinfo?(tnikkel)

For non-wr I think we send the scale to the child here

and we use that value in the child here

For wr I'm not sure how it works, the corresponding wr call to AddEffectUpdate just sends a unit scale. So maybe when wr rasterizes in the gpu/parent proc it assembles the wr display list and has all the info it needs that way?

Looks like layout folks have this one.

Emilio, gentle reminder about this M7a issue assigned to you. :)

Yup, I was blocked on some snapping issues, but bug 1709062 allows me to dig into them and fix them.
