Firefox Update makes MD go black --- solution to the issue


Recommended Posts

If you use FF and have 49.0.2 (update done on the 20th) for sure you have an issue with the MD scenes turning black.

How to solve it:

Navigation bar: "about:config"
Accept the risks.
Search for "dom.ipc.plugins.asyncdrawing.enabled"
Double click to change from "true" to "false"


Thank you @No one for providing the solution!

Question, Why was your value true?



The default is actually false which is what you recommend telling people to set.

If you havent been mucking with it, then I can only assume that its been wrongly changed, or at one point firefox decided to change the default from true to false, and your browsers didnt change.

When I installed firefox just now it was already on false.

To confirm, you never modified this value before?

If anyone has a firefox version, or can make one that doesnt work, without manually changing that value information would be good.
