Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:26.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/26.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131125215016

Steps to reproduce:

Just sitting on Homepages of some specific sites that use HWA


Actual results:

Firefox uses 3 times ore more than IE11 utilization


Expected results:

Firefox should be using at least the same amount and not being as inneficient as possible

Not to mention that on this site http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/ firefox is barely can handle it. The problem is every day browsing while I suspsect is has to do with very bad Direct2D implementation. AMD Devs mentioned that Firefox uses GPU in an extremelt innefficient way -something about draw calls I don't understand-.
