Trying to get directions via google maps on my PC. The map comes up a solid black. Didn't do that before, but today it has. Did something change while I was asleep? Have no idea what to do (I'm not a techie). Can anyone help?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

hello, maybe that's an issue with hardware acceleration - please try updating your graphics driver - this should be the right update for your system: https://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Windows+10+-+64

or in case this doesn't solve the issue, disable hardware acceleration in the firefox menu ≡ > options > advanced > general (that setting will take a restart of the browser to take effect).
