Google Maps Earth 3d view is unavailable

Google Maps keeps showing information, that the Earth 3d view is not available. It worked for two days or so, just after the system reinstallation (Windows 10), but suddenly stopped. Firefox Quantum 69.0 64 bit, system Windows 10 installed a month ago (updated daily), GTX750 Ti, CPU i7-3770, 16 GB RAM. I've tried to clear cache, cookies and google for the solution, but nothing helped. Months ago, when Firefox showed "Earth 3d view is not available" (in the right bottom corner of the map) I could just click that link, and choose "Other versions..." and "Open Maps in 3d" but it doesn't work any more. Earth 3d map view works in Chrome. Please help!

Is WebGL enabled and working properly?

You can check the graphics section on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page for WebGL related messages.

I used - I see no map, only a black screen (and navigation buttons).

in the about:config the Webgl.disable is false in the Options, Under Performance "Use hardware acceleration when available" is checked

I used and get "Your browser supports WebGL" (I see rotating cube)

I used and get: ("Browser wasn't able to run WebGL 2.0 Test")

Okulungisiwe ngu Sulik

Go to about:support and check the WebGL2 sections.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
