Canvas not updating on Firefox Android

Posted

Hello,

I've just updated today both (Firefox and Firefox Beta) on my Android (Kit-Kat 4.4,2) and all my HTML5 games/demos it isn't working anymore on both mobile versions. On the Firefox for PC version (44.0.2) my games is still working .

If you open the demo attached on mobile, it will only update the CANVAS once and stops, on this demo I tried requestAnimation and setInterval without any luck, then I discovered that even the REFRESH isn't working for CANVAS.

The demo just displays the current date and inside the CANVAS it show the first date and stop, outside the canvas it's continuing updating correctly.

Finally the Native Browser and Chrome on the same mobile everything works.

This seems to be a problem with hardware acceleration on certain devices. Your demo failed on my device, but works on my wife's one and both run the same Android and Firefox versions.

The demo works when I disable hardware acceleration. In about:config change gfx.canvas.azure.accelerated to false.
