I was having this issue on a work machine I had a few months ago but cant reproduce it any more on my new work laptop. Before you file the bug, you should try to profile this issue with the Gecko Profiler, It will really help the developers understand and fix the issue and I've noticed they're less likely to ignore your bug. If you need any help doing this then contact me via PM. :)

This canvas particle demo is really slow for me with Direct2D enabled in both Firefox 17 and the current Nightly build.

Results after doing nothing but clicking "Play":
With hardware acceleration enabled, it starts out at 60fps and then gets slower really quickly. Eventually, it stops decreasing at about 8-9fps.
If I disable hardware acceleration, I get a constant 60fps.

Can anyone confirm?

Same here on a clean profile.
Sorry for my bad English. Even if there wasn't a mistake.

For me it starts at 55, stabilizes at 25-26. HWA is on. Not quite as bad, but a definite slowdown.

its only affecting people who have installed the IE10 preview on Windows 7 - so not affecting too many people.

Windows 8 and an up-to-date Windows 7 are edge cases?
