Your question about Direct2D,   please see :

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct2D
As for the long running script errors :
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/warning-unresponsive-script


Firefox being slow :   You could try and disable Multiprocess (e10s) :
You can turn it off as follows : Type in the address bar about:config (promise to be careful, if asked) Type and search for the preferences : browser.tabs.remote.autostart and set it's value to false browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 and set it's value to false

Note:   the exact name of the preference may vary, but it will start with browser.tabs.remote.autostart

I was going to try that, and because I really didn't know what I was doing. I was to afraid to try it. But thank you for your info. I am trying to learn how all of this works, and have to say I am not a techno wiz at this stuff lol.
