I have a WebGL app (built using Unity 2019) which I'm testing locally in Firefox and Edge. If the app is only running in a tab in Firefox, it runs at 25 - 50 fps and has noticeable stutter. If I run the app in Firefox and Edge at the same time (each browser on its own monitor), the performance in Firefox significantly improves - it jumps up to 50 - 60 fps and stutter is eliminated.
Frankly, the results sound ridiculous even to me, but I've tested it over and over and it's 100% consistent. Opening the app in a tab in Edge immediately improves performance in Firefox. Closing the tab in Edge immediately reduces performance in Firefox.
I'm on Windows 10 with a GTX 2070 Super.
