Hi Gabka, have you turned on "privacy.resistFingerprinting" in about:config? That prevents sites from cleanly extracting images from an HTML canvas. Usually when Firefox has blocked clean extraction, a new icon appears next to the lock in the address bar that looks a bit like a picture. Click that icon to make an exception for the site, then try again.
