[SOLVED] Firefox 61.0.2-1 webgl not working

As for the present time, like mentioned in the post title, web acceleration doesnt work. When I try to browse webgl capable website eg. google maps, the following x-session errors appear:

libGL error: MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information
libGL error: image driver extension not found
libGL error: failed to load driver: radeon
libGL error: MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information
unknown chip id 0x6719, can't guess.
libGL error: failed to create dri screen
libGL error: failed to load driver: radeon

My arch install is full up to date:

harfbuzz 1.8.7-1
poppler 0.67.0-1
icu 62.1-1
firefox 61.0.2-1

This is not reproducible on seamonkey.
Thank you for any effort to fix the problem.

Are you running it in firejail?

No, absolutely not. Ordinary xfce session. Worked correct until the last update.

I see that i get the same output on my xfce. But it seems that it doesn't affect anything. I thought it's firejail related 'cause i run FF sandboxed.

I think this actually affects performance cause I get only 15 fps at webgl test site here https://webglsamples.org/aquarium/aquarium.html and google maps seem to work very sluggish.

On the other hand seamonkey performance is quite better (40fps at the same webgl screen and smooth google maps experience as well).

What's your output for

glxinfo | grep OpenGL
lspci -k

Re: [SOLVED] Firefox 61.0.2-1 webgl not working

It's probably Firefox bug 1480755, caused by Arch updating libdrm to 2.4.93 .

You can try the solution from the freedesktop bugzilla:

about:config , set

security.sandbox.content.read_path_whitelist

to

/sys/

and restart Firefox.

@userwithuid  Yep, that improves fps definitely on my HD 5450 card. I assumed it's a some sort of sandboxing issue.

Thank you for all of your support in this thread. Seems the bug has been reported upstream, so the issue is going to be resolved in the next release.

Firefox 62 has landed, and at least for me, the upstream fix works, so this should affect anyone anymore.

firefox 75.0-1

Got hit by the bug. Your solution worked. Thanks.

Can you explain why you needed to install those packages you listed? I have encountered a similar bug (I don't now if it's the same bug); I upgraded my install and now WebGL won't work in Firefox. I followed the bugfix suggested and that DID fix this issue so I'm not sure why those packages are necessary for an install.

It was mentioned at the initial post. I happen to have them installed. That is all.  There is some talk going on about the bug in reddit.
