2D graphics performance on Windows 7 => possibly Direct2D related => CC Bas
As far as I can see Canvas2D is unrelated. It looks to be SVG, haven't looked into this yet though.
Let's call this a Graphics bug then.
Component: Canvas: 2D → Graphics
QA Contact: canvas.2d → thebes
Have you tried profiling, instead of guessing?  Is this even graphics-bound?
I haven't done anything, I admit. OK, back to Canvas 2D.
Component: Graphics → Canvas: 2D
QA Contact: thebes → canvas.2d
Indeed, this has nothing to do with canvas, though it's a tossup whether it should be in SVG or Graphics.  Here's a profile:

Looks like we're hitting some slow/fallback paths, including things like unpremultiplying image alpha in a number of cases.

I realize my comment was a bit vague. What I meant by Canvas2D being unrelated was that the benchmark doesn't do anything Canvas, but only SVG. I didn't mean to suggest that's where the performance bottleneck was.

I am still seeing about 12 fps with the current Nightly, even in full-screen mode.

Well, getting a little better, I was around 17-19 FPS tonight, but still dreadfully slow.

Windows 7 with HWA
For me, Nightly 27 and IE 10 both get around 33 fps while Chrome only hits 29 fps.
But Firefox has no sound, while IE and Chrome have.
I get 40-50 fps with recent Release (25) and with MSIE 11 ~30fps.
Can we close this?

I just ran this on Nightly on Mac 10.9, and Firefox maxed out at 13FPS. I'll check on windows later on.

Windows Results:
Firefox 25, 45-48 FPS
Firefox nightly 4 FPS (We regressed in nightly)
IE 11 31 FPS

So release is good, but nightly has regressed significantly.
Flags: needinfo?(tdowner)
Tyler, are you up for finding a regression range here?
Flags: needinfo?(tdowner)
So I was going to see if bug 934860 lead to the regression here, but in fact I found the opposite (sort of): In the 2013-11-06 Nightly, this demo is unbearably slow - less than 1fps, nearly hanging the browser. In the 2013-11-07 Nightly, I get about 20-22fps, which matches current Nightly. So something in that range significantly increased the performance, though not to anything spectacularly fast.
Keywords: regressionwindow-wanted
Looks like this regressed in the 2013-10-18 Nightly (steady 60fps before, <1fps after), giving a regression range of
https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=423b9c30c73d&tochange=4e7d1e2c93a6
and was partially fixed in the 2013-11-07 Nightly (<1fps before, 21fps after).
Further narrowed down on inbound.

Last good:
https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-inbound-win32/1382003536/

First bad:
https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-inbound-win32/1382004254/

Regression range:
https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/pushloghtml?fromchange=9c8ab7e9ae41&tochange=45d9e6cd3473

So either bug 926706 or bug 923193.

Regressed by

And backed out it in m-i today.

923193 is backed out. We'll re-check this before relanding.
Flags: needinfo?(roc)
Umm, but even with Bug 923193 backed out there still remains another Regression of >10fps on Release/Beta (as stated above >40fps) vs. Aurora/Trunk (~30fps).
Maybe it's bug 935008 (i.e. bug 922942)?

Are you check with pgo build?
There are about 10% differences between PGO and non PGO build.
