If you can bear to look at the constant, unending stream of Android mochitest-3 failures, you'll see that most of the ones which actually managed to even start a browser died in or just after the dom/imptests/ section, a brutally intensive set of tests which has to only report once every 100 tests in order to not overflow the maximum log size. Not surprisingly, that makes it a whole lot of work for a tegra to manage without a rest. Despite his deep and abiding love for Android in general and our tests run on it in particular, Ms2ger is okay with skipping them :)
I am all game for removing the 5% of stuff that causes 90% of pain.
Pretty much all the code these tests are testing is cross-platform code, so I don't think having them run on Android adds enough coverage to make it worth running them there. r=me to disable them on Android if you want to take it :)
