Firefox tab crashes by loading maps.google.com on ubuntu 16.04

On a ubuntu 16.04 system firefox crashes by loading maps.google.com:

"Der Tab ist gerade abgestürzt / This tab has crashed"
"Automatischen Absturzbericht an Mozilla senden"

 The only way to fix this was going to "about:config":

On this page search for "webgl.disabled" and change the value from false
to true:

After that, maps.google.com loads without any problem...

  1. I've had the same problem with chrome after updating the nvidia driver. Reverting to the old one fixed it. Of course webgl could have been disabled too, but it affected more gpu heavy applications aswell and I like google maps with webgl enabled.
