Per the title, webgl suddenly stopped working a couple days ago. The error seems to be:

WebGL creation failed: * WebglAllowWindowsNativeGl:false restricts context creation on this system.

I'm on Ubuntu 21.04 (X, not wayland) with an nvidia graphics card. The "share data" below seems comprehensive, but let me know if any other info will help.

FF profile choice problem on Linux Mint with Claws email

I have three FF profiles on my Linux Mint 19.3 system (work, not-work and one for e-tail). Somehow the problem only appeared after I added that last one. All profiles have the same syntax; I checked the files. Neither one is set to be the dominant one. Typically, I don't use more than one at a time.

I also use Claws mail. Whenever I get any mail with a link I want to check out, I just used to click on that link and it opened in a new tab in the FF browser profile that was currently open. Similarly, whenever I wanted to see the HTML version of a mail, I right-clicked on the html-icon and chose open. Again, it picked the open browser.

Now, though, whenever I pick either one of those options above, I get the "Choose User Profile" box. If I pick the profile that is currently open, I get an error telling me that it's already running.

Since I mostly read email when I use the no-work FF profile, I tried to add "firefox -P NotWork -no-remote --class NotWorkProfile" but that also resulted in the choose user profile box to open.

My current work-around is to copy the link and open it in a new tab, or pull the whole mail into the tab to see the HTML version. Quite annoying.

Is there any way to get it to ignore all other profiles but the currently open one? Thank you for anyone who has an idea. Let me know if there's anything else I may add to explain the situation.

[My apologies if this isn't the right forum; I'm also attempting to ask this question in the Linux Mint and Claws forums, if those exist.]

I want to save not only a web page but also the pages that it links to. All pages belongs to the same web site. Can I do that in one step, or does each page have to be saved one by one? I think I was able to download an entire site (to run it offline) years ago.

(I know how to save a single page, by Firefox's "File -> Save Page As (Web Page, complete", but that only saves a copy of the actual page.)

I have very much came to depend on Firefox. I've tried everything mentioned to users with same problem. Even Passwords and Settings have white windows (no text or anything else showing. When I reinstall Firefox I get vcruntime140_1.dll error. How can I fix it? I have the latest update.

While writing this I went back to double check the vcruntime140_1.dll install. I found it wasn't on the main Mozilla Directory - so I copied it. And now Firefox works! The file came from https://www.dll-files.com/. I don't need any further assistance.

Just leaving this as a record for others who may be having a hard time.

Thanks Mozilla for all you do!
