Why does google maps blur when zoomed out?

Posted

Hi, On Firefox 71, when addons are enabled/disabled, I experience blurry instead of crisp graphics on Google Maps. Initially when the page loads at say 67% zoom, 10 seconds later, it gets blurry and then I get the warning from google maps to load the maps page at 100% zoom for best view. This wasn't an issue on previous firefoxes, and I haven't changed hardware, maybe it's a config setting? How do I fix this?

In about:config, "webgl.disabled" was set to true. I did that because an article said that webgl is a security risk. After setting it to false, the unnecessary blurrying issue resolved.

I'd see if updating ff to 72 resolves it, but it might've been a bug that caused it to not go blurry in older versions that was fixed in 71.

You may have accidentally zoomed web page(s). Reset the page zoom on pages that cause problems.

  • View -> Zoom -> Reset (Ctrl+0/Command+0 (zero))
