Disabling Hardware Acceleration via GPO- where is it??

Post by nickl99 » Thu Oct 30, 2014 9:08 pm

We have pushed the latest current version of Frontmotion to 3000+ staff and our call centre is getting BSOD with plugin containes related issues. We think its flash and video card related but has only happened with Frontmotion 31.

I am wanting to try disabling hardware acceleration- where is it in the GPO template?

I just googeld for "firefox disable hardware acceleration" and found this link, for example: http://www.askvg.com/how-to-disable-har ... t-problem/ in order to get the settings in Firefox config.

Those two mentioned settings for disabling the hardware acceleration are GFX_DIRECT2D_DISABLED and LAYERS_ACCELERATION_DISABLED - they are both in the provided Frontmotion mozilla.admx GPO template (otherwise, for missing settings in the not up-to-date template, you can add them yourselve, but not necessary here for this).

I have not tested the settings, just found them, and I hope it helps.
