Have latest Nvidia drivers on FF8 for Linux but WebGL not working
I downloaded Firefox 8 for my Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit desktop, which has (according to about:support):
- Adapter Description: NVIDIA Corporation -- GeForce 8800 GTS/PCI/SSE2
- Driver Version: 3.3.0 NVIDIA 285.05.09WebGL
- Renderer: Blocked for your graphics driver version. Try updating your graphics driver to version NVIDIA 257.21 or newer.
- GPU Accelerated Windows: 0/1. Blocked for your graphics driver version. Try updating your graphics driver to version NVIDIA 257.21 or newer.
Those drivers are the latest straight from Nvidia's website. Yet if I go to any WebGL page, it tells me my browser doesn't support WebGL. What's wrong? OpenGL, Compiz effects, etc. all otherwise work. Thanks in advance for any help.

Try to reset all gfx.blacklist prefs.
Wow, that did it. Thanks. Why in the world was "NVIDIA 257.21" the default value? Ridiculous.
It may have been a remnant from the past when you still had an older driver.
