Sorry to hear that the newer driver crashes your system, but that is the problem that needs to get solved here. Try reporting to your computer manufacturer or to NVIDIA.

For what it's worth, Google Chrome's next version has adopted our blacklisting rule and is now also requiring NVIDIA 257.21 or newer: http://src.chromium.org/viewvc/chrome/trunk/src/chrome/browser/resources/software_rendering_list.json

Do you set "webgl.force_osmesa" to true in "about:config"? Set "webgl.force_osmesa" to false, set webgl.prefer-native-gl to true, and restart firefox try again.

My notebook is G 105M, I update to 266.58 driver and set "webgl.force_osmesa" to false , the firefox 4.0 and Minefield could run webGL

Managed to get the latest driver from nVidia installed, thanks to support from Dell. Just needed the latest chipset drivers from Dell so that there were no conflicts with the nVidia driver.

WebGL working now :-)
