I've switched my gpu from a nvidia gtx 970 to a nvidia rtx 2060, reinstalled my drivers after cleaning them with DDU but for some reason Mozilla (and only Mozilla) when running diagnostic pages like webglreport still report using the old card: "Platform: Win32 Browser User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:109.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/111.0 Context Name: webgl GL Version: WebGL 1.0 Shading Language Version: WebGL GLSL ES 1.0 Vendor: Mozilla Renderer: ANGLE (NVIDIA, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0) Unmasked Vendor: Google Inc. (NVIDIA) Unmasked Renderer: ANGLE (NVIDIA, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0) Antialiasing: Available ANGLE: Yes, D3D9 Major Performance Caveat: No "

probably it is just an estetic issue but as I'm using several webgl intensive apps I would like to know how to "reset" mozilla gpu detection.
