On android xul, we run with e10s and our reftest harness will setup the xul window to have the remote=true attribute. For native fennec we have the preference to turn on e10s set, but we don't read it. This means that reftest is still thinking we are remote, but in reality we are not.
In trying to turn this off, I found that we have 16 tests which pass on android-xul, but are failing now on native with the browser.tabs.remote pref turned off.
The log file showing this is here:
Can we get somebody to look at this bug? This might knock out half of our failing reftests by figuring out why these canvas tests are failing.

I'm not eager to jump into this (I don't have a mobile build config right now), but for the record, the failing tests from comment 0 are:
See also the tests listed in bug 739711 comment 1. (which appear to be failing for the same reason)
*** Bug 739711 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
can we get somebody to look at this?
I am going to mark the manifest file as failing on android&&browserIsRemote. This is the XUL case only. As this passes on Android Native and we are focused on Native development I vote for closing this bug as wont fix.
Please add the relevant check-in for the manifest file, then close this one. Thanks!
ok, I mixed these up with another test, these tests are in parity for failing both on android xul and native!
ok, reopening this as per discussion in irc with :dholbert. We should figure out why these tests fail in general on Android which is different from the original intention of the bug to figure out why we are getting different results between xul and native.
jmaher, is this still an issue? This bug is still open, and yet it doesn't look like these tests have been flagged as failing. Are they still causing trouble anywhere?
these are running on both xul and native android fennec builds and appear to be passing. this snuck through the cracks.
