Description

When gfxCardStatus blames Firefox, it would be nice if Firefox could tell me what within Firefox is keeping the discrete graphics card active.

I'd like it to blame both a tab/url and a technology used by that tab (WebGL, etc).

This would especially help when a bug prevents the "close a tab, GC, close another tab, GC" strategy from working.
