Changing pixel density does cause a layout in Gecko. For example we round
CSS border widths to a whole number of device pixels. (This ensures that
when page zoom is applied, all borders with the same specified width are
rendered with the same visual width.) On some platforms (Windows), changing
pixel density affects text hinting which affects text layout.
