Session restore flushes layout on save; affects page performance
When session restore saves data, it saves scroll positions. It seems to use the scrollX and scrollY properties on content windows to do that. Unfortunately, those don't just read back the scroll position: they flush layout and _then_ return the resulting scroll position. For session restore that seems unnecessary: if the scroll position will change after reflow, we'll just get called again. And the current setup means that if you take a long page and trigger an interruptible reflow and then scroll during it, then after 3 seconds you get a non-interruptible flush and your browser freezes up for a while until that's done. We should probably just have an nsIDOMWindowUtils API for doing this without flushing. Thoughts?

Comment on attachment 368159 [details] [diff] [review] make use of new getter It'd be awfully nice to also get a test case here - e.g. as to whether duplicating a scrolled tab also restores the correct scroll position. Thanks and r+=me with those added.
