Use latest nightly. Make sure Fission is enabled.
Go to
Configure the page such that the demo is on the left pane, and the editor is on the right pane
Pinch-zoom slowly

AR: Glitches at the edge of the screen
ER: Not so

Regression gave me the following :

Bug 1732358 - Part 5: Add the fission rollout slug to the GRADUATION_SET, r=mythmon
Depends on D133008
Differential Revision:

With Fission disabled, a build from Jul-21 doesnt repro the bug. But when I manually enabled fission, I could repro.
Therefore, this bug is triggered by fission (but may have root cause elsewhere)

Attached video Bug.mp4

If you export the demo to your local machine and run the demo from there, the bug doesnt repro.
Tentatively marking bug 1732358 as the regressor.

Redirecting ni? to :emilio who is more familiar with the setup we use for pinch-zoom with Fission.

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

This is probably an APZ and/or WebRender bug, more than fission per se. Probably WR is clipping / culling primitives a bit too aggressively or so?

Component: DOM: Content Processes → Graphics: WebRender

With my daily profile, the demo causes Nightly to turn white, but no crash report is generated. The following message is printed in log :

(this might be the same as bug 1750348)

Un-assigning for now since it's not a recent regression, but we'll need to fix this one in WR - from comment 8 it appears to be an issue with how we use DC.
