Created attachment 753256 [details] Blocked Graphic driver.jpg User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:21.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/21.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20130511120803 Steps to reproduce: Blocklisting/Blocked Graphics Drivers - MozillaWiki - https://wiki.mozilla.org/Blocklisting/Blocked_Graphics_Drivers My laptop has an old AMD HD 3470 graphic card as the official driver for win 8 X64 has not been updated so long. From the about:support page, I can clearly see the firefox blocked the driver versions lower than certain digits. According to this webpage, I manually set "gfx.direct2d.force-enabled" = true. Actual results: After restarting the firefox, the red border of the DOM selection from DOM inspector disappeared. The situation is that after I clicked the " Find a node to inspect by clicking on it" from DOMI to inspect the webpage, the actual DOM selection normally should have a red zoom border. But the red rectangle disappeared. The inspect function is still functional. Expected results: I also set other 3, webgl.force-enabled=true webgl.msaa-force=true layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true But only gfx.direct2d.force-enabled=true has an effect on DOMI's red border.
The graphic driver I choose from the sreenshot is the Win8 system default AMD driver. As I chose AMD official "13-1-legacy_vista_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc", AMD Catalyst™ Driver for AMD Radeon™ HD 4000, HD 3000 and HD 2000 Series - http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/legacy/Pages/legacy-radeonaiw-vista64.aspx the driver version is 8.970.100.7000, got blocked by Firefox as well. And I got the same result after manually set "gfx.direct2d.force-enabled"=true
If Firefox blocked your driver, then it blocked it because it doesn't support it. Forcing it to be enabled will probably result in problems like the one you're seeing. This isn't really a bug.
