Should pixi.js webGL work in electron?

I've been building little browser game, but for the sake of learning new stuff I've tried to make my game run in desktop using Electron. The game loads up well, doesn't show any errors but the whole canvas is white, BUT if I use variable forceCanvas = true, it works!

So there has to be some kind of issue with the WebGL. Does the WebGL or pixi even work in electron or does my computer have some kind of weird issue with graphics? (Debian with AMD so it is possible... :D)

I had to add this to get WebGL working on a laptop with an AMD chip.
// Chrome by default black lists certain GPUs because of bugs.
// if your are not able to view webgl try enabling --ignore-gpu-blacklist option
// But, this will make electron/chromium less stable.
app.commandLine.appendSwitch('--ignore-gpu-blacklist');
