I used to know the answer to this. I don't remember now. I think it had to do with feature set and access to certain things in Windows.

Regardless, it won't matter. When Webrender is default, D2D is gone.
Latest: Firefox/62.0.3 *ESR/62.2.2 - Mobile/62.0.3 - Thunderbird/60.2.1
Nightly: Nightly/64.0a1 - Mobile/64.0a1 - Daily/64.0a1

Checked: D2D improves SVG filters a lot by running them on the GPU
