    Google Maps is black screen on Map or Satellite Setting Since upgrade


    When I open Google Maps, I get the street view photos at the bottom of the screen, but the map itself is a black screen in both street map and satellite settings.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you,

    TRS

    Edit: Latest Win10 64 drivers are installed; Nvidia GeForce GTX 750Ti

    Exactly the same with me, all other online maps work fine. I posted this 2 days ago and no takers. You have same card as me too!!

    Upgraded to Win10 last night and today noticed the same problem. I have an nVidia GTX 560 Ti. Also upgraded to latest drivers with no fix.

    Two fixes / workarounds I found:

    As a workaround, the map worked fine in lite mode ... full mode gave the black screen after about 5 seconds.

    The full fix I uninstalled the nVidia 3D vision drivers from my system as I don't do 3D. Now Google Maps work in full mode.

    If you need the 3D drivers, I did note it put addins into Firefox (which is what prompted me to remove the drivers) ... you may be able to just disable those addins.

    SBD,

    Disabled the 3D plugin on Firefox and voila! All is good. Thank you.

    I have this same problem. When I first load Firefox, it's fine. After some time of browsing, Google maps is dark when I load it.

    Only restarting Firefox gives a temporary fix.

    @tollbooth I had a similar issue for a while. The only solution that I could find was to delete all Google related cookies. I tried to delete the Google Maps cookies at first but it worked for only a day or 2. When I delete all Google cookies, it has been stable for months. Obviously, this may not help you, but I hope it helps you or someone else. Good luck!
