Could not find this.

Did not exist, so I edited prefs.js directly.

Adapter Description
        GLXtest process failed (exited with status 1): GLX version older /
than the required 1.3

WebGL Renderer:
        Blocked for your graphics card because of unresolved driver issues.

GPU Accelerated Windows: 0. Blocked for your graphics driver version. /
        Try updating your graphics driver to version /
        <Anything with EXT_texture_from_pixmap support> or newer.

The only drivers that work with this machine (Intel G33) are intel and vesa.
The intel driver does occasionally freeze X entirely requiring a boot, but
this is not what happens when trying to load twitter pages.

Anyway, above did not help with problem at hand.
