I have a similar problem in a Windows 7 64-bit guest running in VBox v3.2.10 r66523.

When I try an open this very simple WebGL test page:

in the the latest Chromium Canary release: "9.0.593.0 canary build" which is available for Windows here:

The initial html content is displayed but the browser reports that the page has become: "unresponsive" while trying to initialize the WebGL canvas and offers to let me "Kill" the page.

I have 128 MB of video memory assigned to this Win7 instance and I have turned on both 2D and 3D acceleration in the Video Settings.

Minefield 4.0b8pre reports that is also: "Could not initialize WebGL".

Status update:

Host: Windows 7 x64 + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 + NV 285.62 + Chrome 17 + VBox 4.1.8 = WebGL works (also tried FFox 10, same result)

Guest: Windows 7 x64 (3D enabled) + Chrome 17 = WebGL FAILs. (also tried FFox 10, same result)

WebGL Test:

More tests:

Supporting WebGL is important for web developers.

It is disabled by default in current versions of Firefox because of the problem. You will have to force-enable it. It would be nice if someone did and fixed this bug.
