User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0
Build ID: 20170808130316

Steps to reproduce:

Since I heard it should be working in nightly, this is supposedly a bug.

It happens on every WebVR site (samples on webvr.info, aframe.io) when trying to enter VR mode.

RX 480 with newest linux and mesa.
GPU #1
Active	Yes
Description	X.Org -- AMD Radeon (TM) RX 480 Graphics (POLARIS10 / DRM 3.18.0 / 4.13.0-rc2-gaee65f09d28b, LLVM 6.0.0)
Vendor ID	X.Org
Device ID	AMD Radeon (TM) RX 480 Graphics (POLARIS10 / DRM 3.18.0 / 4.13.0-rc2-gaee65f09d28b, LLVM 6.0.0)
Driver Version	3.0 Mesa 17.3.0-devel (git-d78b74b8dd)

Other steamvr vulkan and opengl applications work fine.


Actual results:

The SteamVR compositor doesn't receive any frames (shows the "loading" animation window), vrmonitor says firefox is unresponsive and firefox repeatedly spams this message to the console:
[GFX1]: SharedSurfaceType::Basic not supported for WebVR

As far as I remember this has always happened from the very first time I tried it shortly after the first SteamVR beta release in february.
