Yesterday I switched my browser from Chromium to Firefox and when I try to use plot3d() the output shows no graph.

f(x,y) = x^2 + y^2 - x*y

Everything is white where the graph should be. I do see the small i at the bottom right of the window, but nothing else. Am I doing something wrong here?

Ubuntu 20.04 / Firefox 80.0.1 / Sage 9.0 / Sage was installed via terminal.

What operating system? What version of Firefox? What version of Sage? How was Sage installed?

By "installed by terminal" do you mean with sudo apt install? or git clone + make? or conda?

I didn't know what version you wanted me to install so I installed both that are available on Ubuntu-20.04.

firefox-esr 68.12 has the same issue, plot3d() does not show anything.

firefox-esr 78.2 the issue seems to be gone, plot3d() works normal.
