My try runs for bug 1742842 show that tests in the accessible/tests/browser/ folder leave vSync enabled at the end of the test.

I tried to produce a reduced testcase, and it turns out that this line in the common.js file is what keeps vSync enabled forever:

var gAccService = Cc[";1"].getService(

Wild. I'm looking at some vsync bugs and I'll investigate this one also.

Here is a browser-chrome mochitest to easily reproduce the issue.

I captured a profile of it: (./mach test browser/base/content/test/performance/browser_vsync_accessibility.js --profiler), and it reveals that the content process has an "Accessibility notifications [Display]" RefreshObserver, added with this stack:

Does this help?

I've done a bit of debugging. There is code to remove the refresh observer at, but it doesn't run, because mDocument->HasLoadState(DocAccessible::eCompletelyLoaded) returns false. The value of mLoadState is 1 (eTreeConstructed).

Reading the code around, reminded me bug 1748466. Changing the test if (mDocumentNode->GetReadyStateEnum() == dom::Document::READYSTATE_COMPLETE) to add || mDocumentNode->IsInitialDocument() similar to what was done in bug 1748466 makes the test I attached in comment 2 pass.

I don't know if this is the right fix, but it could be.

I don't know if this is the right fix, but it could be.

Hopefully try and reviewers will know :-).

Florian, thanks for staying on this. I haven't advanced this at all.

Jamie, is this review still on your radar?

Thanks for the ping. I'm so sorry. This somehow totally slipped off my radar. 😳
