I'm trying to get working WebGL on Firefox without success, I tried forcing WebGL in the Firefox configuration and updating the Mesa drivers, but it's still not working. It's working on Opera, so the problem isn't the driver... I have an integrated Intel HD Graphics...

What are the values of webgl.disabled and other webgl. preferences (in about:config)? – peterph Oct 11 '13 at 17:17
I posted the values of webgl config! – DGomez Oct 11 '13 at 17:25
Just to make sure, the message you are getting is: "Hmm. While your browser seems to support WebGL, it is disabled or unavailable. If possible, please ensure that you are running the latest drivers for your video card."? – peterph Oct 11 '13 at 18:17
Yes, that's the message – DGomez Oct 11 '13 at 18:31
