WebGL Firefox Error

So I figured I'd post about this, since I ran into a problem and had to dig through some forum posts to find how to fix this. My problem was on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS using Firefox 12.0, with NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150. Trying to use WebGL gave me the error that I forgot to save because I'm smart like that.

Anyway, the quick fix was to enter in your url about:config, then search for WebGL, then enable webgl.force-enabled. No idea if it will cause any problems, but for now it works.

***Edit:
Updated to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, same settings and everything and now WebGL just refuses to work at all. No solution found yet, all the ones that I tried did absolutely nothing.
