I'll have to try the WE version of uBO on Basilisk 55 just to see what happens.

Darn: WebRTC option still greyed out on uBO 1.18.2 on Basilisk 55. Apparently, enabling that option requires a FF version > 53, which makes it a no-go for XP.

I'm switching to the legacy version of uBO in Basilisk 55 too....

I don't have XP 64, so i tested on windows 7. as roytam1 said, please use compat mode in about:config. I personally needed to enable all 3 (webgl, gecko and firefox compats).

 

PS never expected to stumble upon geoportal on this site...

Hi guys,

Does Google Maps work fine for you? For me it opens fine but after a second or two, the map´s screen goes black and

can´t show any part of the map. The zoom tool is there though. What´s wrong? How can I fix this?

Thanks.

Cheers.

Don't know why they don't work for you, but I can confirm they work fine on my end.

Well, I just tried the 3 mods available of the latest version of the browser, 27.9, and the problem is there on 3 mods.

Tested with clean installs, no old settings.

This problem doesn´t occur with Google Chrome, with the old latest working version on XP.

So, what could be the problem? Here I attach a screenshot so you can see.

can also confirm that google maps works fine for me on all 3 browsers.

maybe try make sure hardware acceleration is enable.  And update your gfx card drivers if that doesn't work.  Check this page idk if it is relevant or not.

https://www.sitepoint.com/firefox-enable-webgl-blacklisted-graphics-card/

Try updating your video drivers 1st. if that doesn't work check try these.

To enable WebGL, set webgl.force-enabled to true.

To enable Layers Acceleration, set layers.acceleration.force-enabled to true

To enable Direct2D in Windows Vista/7, set gfx.direct2d.force-enabled to true

Just a side note, in my old browser and on OSM that happens when the scripts switch to a higher encryption, which it can't support yet. First looks fine, then BANG - server kills the tiles. Maybe check current TLS1.2 settings? "security" prefs in aboutconfig. Hm, and remember some pref about security hardening...
Another thought: Fake the useragent. Some major sites today just kick out XP-users (if UA contains "Windows NT5.x")
Or perhaps the browser already has a hardcoded fake UA for the tile server...

Thanks for your replies, but the solutions given could still be viable knowing that, as I said, this problem doesn´t occur with Chrome?

If the problem were hardware acceleration or the graphics card drivers, it should happen also with Chrome, right?

I don´t know about WebGL, but will try the modifications mentioned for about:config.

But, if this WebGL is broken, where is it broken? If clean installations of new browsers have the same problem, the problem

doesn´t seem to be within the 'about:config' configuration of the browser, does it?
