    Firefox asks for Intel HD Graphics driver at least 8.15.10.2202, to activate direct2d, webgl and accelerated windows.

    The actual version from toshiba is 8.15.10.2189.

    Intel offers new versions. Can I download them and install them or do I hurt to my w100?

    Hi

    I’m not W100 owner but I’ve got another Toshiba notebook (U400) which is equipped with an Intel graphic chip. I downloaded and installed the graphic card driver from Intel page. Until now everything run smoothly…
    But I read here in the forum that the usage of non-Toshiba graphic drivers is an own risk…

    Thank you for your useful reply.
    But the w100 is special with its two screens.
    Because of this I would like to hear a confirmation of somebody of the technical staff.

    The gigabyte notebook with u5400 has already version 8.15.10.2246

    This is user to user forum so I don’t think that some of technicians would browse through the threads… but in my opinion the Intel graphic chip should not be affected using the drivers from Intel page…

    I've got WebGL working.
    Also direct2d works and accelerated windows layer.

    about:config

    I have enabled by force webgl, direct2d and layer-acceleration, but not msaa.

    With my drivers I didn't find a solution. Drivers that aren't signed from Toshiba don't work.
    If Toshiba won't do anthing nothing will change.
    The driver of the W100 is on the blacklist of firefox.
