WebGL in Firefox stopped working

Posted

I can't view WebGL content anymore. It used to work until a few weeks ago (sorry I can't be more specific). It works OK on other browsers on my computer.

How do I get WebGL working again?

Seems the update to 68.0.2 did the trick. Thanks Mozilla!

You can try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.

You can check the Graphics section on the about:support (Help -> Troubleshooting Information) page.

Thanks cor-el . Looks like I might be on to something. In about:support, in the graphics section under WebGL 1 Driver Renderer it says:

WebGL creation failed:

  • Refused to create native OpenGL context because of blacklist entry: FEATURE_FAILURE_OLD_NVIDIA
  • Exhausted GL driver options.

And under WebGL 2 Driver Renderer I get:

WebGL creation failed:

  • Refused to create WebGL2 context because of blacklist entry: FEATURE_FAILURE_OLD_NVIDIA

Can anyone help me interpret this and help to to find a solution?
