    Re: WebGL stopped working in Firefox beta?

    Back to the original topic if you don't mind,

    I set webgl.force-enable to true and everything works ok again
    without it get.webgl.org tells me my browser does not support webgl, with it, its ok.
    I have an nVidia 8600m GT on a Windows Vista 32 bit laptop.
    what could be the problem? is it blacklisted?

    Well I do mind, I dont think its blacklisted (does such a list even exist)
    You have pretty standard hardware,
    Like Ive said its very early days ATM no released browser supports webGL, at this stage teething troubles are gonna be common place; I wouldnt worry too much about it now
    I had the same thing with chrome, calling
    canvas.getContext("experimental-webgl")
    didnt work for a month, it now does.

    @steve what CPU do u have,
    I have a Intel Pentium Dual E2200 @ 2.20GHz
    http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup. ... 40+2.20GHz
    1249 points

    If its on this page
    http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html
    theres a good chance you wont see a difference between chrome+firefox I assume firefox is cpu limited

    After a quick correspondence with Benoit Jacob from Mozilla it turned out that they blacklisted all driver versions prior to and including 257.21, a version I had from Windows update.
    Upgrading to the current version solved the issue.
    This does actually raise my concern that my potential users, who are not fortunate enough to have direct access to someone from FF dev team, will just resolve this as "well this WebGL thing doesn't really work"

    Well, that's why this is a "Beta" release. It's not done yet.
