I can see a couple of missing elements from some websites. But it's definitely a performance improvement.

Same here. I had to disable it, it was crash-happy. Hopefully it'll improve quickly though as, when it did actually work, it was faster.

I've set layout.display-list.retain to true, no crashes so far, only a couple of glitches here and there :-"

Retained lists crash on parts of FB, but only that tab crashes. Hopefully the crash reports will be of great help to the devs. The speed boost is amazing.

Still a lot of work to be done. Best if the devs test it in Facebook & Twitter to collect 75+% of the remaining breakings.

I've been noticing lately that APZ mouse wheel scroll shows slowdowns. It scrolls as always, but in the smooth scroll "timeline" two thirds might be slower, like usually it scrolls with 60 fps and then only with 20 fps. It's hard to describe but looks and feels really irritating. Happens even with just a few tabs loaded and no videos running. Couldn't narrow it down to anything yet.
