[Public WebGL] WebGL support in Oracle VirtualBox

For the record, on Firefox too, to use WebGL with VirtualBox you have to force-enable (about:config, webgl.force-enabled). We did this specifically because of a VirtualBox crash at that time (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=621411). It would be interesting to hear if anyone can get a complete run of the conformance test suite with VirtualBox (using Firefox Nightly or Chrome Canary), and report on test failures. 

Cheers, 
Benoit
