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.

You can try to force WebGL and set this pref to true on the about:config page.

  • about:config => webgl.force-enabled = true

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".

Thanks, that did it! I'm surprised that never came up in any of the googling I did. Maybe I'm bad at googling...
