[Public WebGL] Re: WebGL 2 EXT_disjoint_timer_query in Firefox

Ah, I just realized I was only using the TIME_ELAPSED_EXT and GPU_DISJOINT_EXT enums on the extensions, which is why they appeared to be interchangeable. The presence of the original EXT_disjoint_timer_query on a WebGL 2 context does still strike me as odd, since the text from spec I quoted suggests that it shouldn't be.

I'm confused by how EXT_disjoint_timer_query is behaving with WebGL 2 contexts in Firefox. It allows both WebGL 1 (e.g. ext.createQueryEXT) and WebGL 2 (gl.createQuery) usage. Is the WebGL 2 usage is guaranteed for this extension? The EXT_disjoint_timer_query spec doesn't mention the WebGL 2 usage, but does state: "This version of the disjoint_timer_query extension is exposed only on on WebGL 1.0 contexts. See the _webgl2 version of the extension for how it is exposed on WebGL 2.0 contexts." Does that mean EXT_disjoint_timer_query should behave as specified in EXT_disjoint_timer_query_webgl2 when using a WebGL 2 context? If so, it would seem that the WebGL 1-like functionality that Firefox exposes on that extension is incorrect.

Either way, this all seems more confusing than it needs to be...
