User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:100.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/100.0

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create an element
  2. Make sure browser zoom is 100%
  3. Add drop-shadow with both x & y offsets set to 0 and blur <= 0.4rem to it

see testcase.html

Actual results:

Shadow is slightly offset top & left.

see (firefox)

Note: It doesn't occur in some browser zoom levels (or at least it's less noticeable).

Expected results:

Shadow shouldn't have an offset.

see (chromium)

Bug 1749380 - Part 2 - Performance and quality fixes for part 1. r=gfx-reviewers,nical

  • Add support for local scale factors to a surface, allowing it to
    be rasterized in root coordinate space. This allows snapping to
    work across surfaces where the surface transform is a fractional

  • Calculate scaling factors per rasterized surface and propagate
    them. Ensures correct scale factor calculations when dealing with
    nested preserve-3d contexts with 90-degree axis rotations.

  • Support determining exact surface device rect for 2d surfaces
    with fractional surface transforms.

  • Fix line decoration cache key size calculations based on world
    scaling factor.

  • Remove get_clipped_device_rect usage for calculating clip-mask
    surface allocations, use surface.get_surface_rect instead. The
    prior method doesn't correctly account for expanded local regions
    from the current dirty rect, resulting in invalidation issues in
    some animated edge cases. Also unifies the way clip-mask surface
    allocations work with the way general render target surface
    allocations work.
