Create a new profile exclusively for the 4.0 beta version and create a desktop shortcut with -P "profile" appended to the target to launch that profile.

If that new profile works then you can transfer some files from the old profile to that new profile (be careful not to copy corrupted files)

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Transferring_data_to_a_new_profile_-_Firefox

Google may not have update the Google Body site to reflect that Firefox 4 b8 is WebGL enabled. Try giving it a little time.

Also, if you're still having trouble with WebGL, please post the information from Help>Troubleshooting Information under Graphics at the bottom.

The web page uses a test script like this to test for WebGL support (copy and paste in the location bar)

data:text/html;charset=utf-8,
<html>
<head>
<script>function browserSupportsWebGL() {var canvas = document.getElementById('gltest');var context = null;var names = ["webgl", "experimental-webgl", "webkit-3d", "moz-webgl"];for (var i = 0; i < names.length; ++i) {try { context = canvas.getContext(names[i]); } catch(e) {}if (context) { break; }}return context != null;};function show(){alert('WebGL '+(browserSupportsWebGL()?'':'not ')+'supported');}</script>
</head>
<body onload="show()">
<canvas id="gltest" style="width:1px; height:1px">
