Created attachment 688118 [details] about support.txt User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:20.0) Gecko/20121202 Firefox/20.0 Build ID: 20121202030723 Steps to reproduce: 1. Enable debug paint flash 2. Go to : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/apps 3. Put the vertical scroll bar approximately in the middle 4. Move scroll bar up and down a bit. Actual results: Invalidation of the page. Expected results: No invalidation.
Comment #1 was with HWA on. As you scroll down a bit from the middle position, there is a visible horizontal size change of the text area, which probably causes the repaint. With HWA OFF, the complete page invalidates continuously on scrolling , using 90% CPU.
Can you reproduce this issue with a clean profile or in safe mode? http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles
can repro with a new profile. comment #0 and comment #1 might be two different bugs
There is no change in CPU usage on my machine, but I do see some repaints every now and then while reproducing the steps in comment 0. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:21.0) Gecko/20130109 Firefox/21.0

With HWA on, I do see some changes in CPU usages but they are rather normal (increases and decreases by at most 5% every now and then).
for me, with HWA on , there is some invalidation on the page while scrolling. With HWA off, there is continuous full page invalidation. CPU usage could depend on many factors, including speed of scrolling and maybe screen size too. similar effect can be observed here : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/ Scroll down slowly. You will see some fantastic invalidation. In fact, similar invalidation behaviour is present on a lot of mozilla pages. So maybe investigate this ?
page has changed. cant reproduce anymore
