Firefox can no longer play Netflix movies

Firefox can no longer play Netflix movies. Firefox loads the Netflix site. Firefox attempts to play the movie. Then, Firefox can't play the movie. Netflix says "Your browser is no longer supported." This happens every time there is a Firefox update! Do you guys not test your products in development before release? Please fix your product. I tried all your 'help' items.

Websites say that Firefox is outdated or incompatible even though it's the latest version

Firefox issue. I logged it as a bug in the Firefox GitHub. So hopefully they will fix it. This has happened to me before with Firefox. I think its an error with how Firefox is handling DRM content from Netflix. DRM mechanism called a Content Decryption Module (CDM). Because my movies start for one second, then I get the error message. You can read about the DRM here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-drm?as=u&utm_source=inproduct

This error happens in both Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition for desktop. Both apps updated on June 1. Both apps now not playing Netflix DRM content.

Firefox had this same issue with Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight in the past. Now it has the same issue with Google Wildvine.

The irony of watching Netflix in Chrome right now while I'm trying to problem-solve Netflix in Firefox. The struggle is real.

Make sure you have updated to Widevine 4.10.2209.1 and aren't using Widevine 4.10.1582.2

You may have to update to Firefox 78.11.0.

Try to toggle DRM off/on to see if that makes Firefox (re)load DRM components.

Maybe this is Googles way of getting Firefox folks onto Chrome. lol

Firefox is not giving me a yellow message bar in my browser window: "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video on this page. Please try again later."

^: that article is largely outdated and doesn't apply to the current situation.

You can check the Browser Console for XHR messages about GMP that should appear shortly if you toggle DRM off/on in Preferences.
