The problem is that this option requires different behavior for 
requestAnimationFrame and declarative animation events, as far as I can 

Keeping those in sync with each other is why Firefox has the behavior it 

Note that the difference in efficiency between "never fire" and "fire 
many seconds apart" is very very low in practice, so I don't think the 
efficiency argument is particularly strong.

Now maybe declarative animation events should _also_ not fire in 
background tabs.  I would be a lot happier with that than in having 
requestAnimationFrame get out of sync with declarative animations.
