Try downloading a different version of Firefox and run it. Do not sign into your Firefox account and see if you have the same issue.
One possible reason for this is if your Widevine DRM decoder is not updating. You could try forcing an update using the following method:
(1) Disable DRM support (2) Wait a few minutes (3) Re-enable DRM support (4) Wait a few minutes
That should trigger Firefox to remove, and then re-download and re-install the Widevine plugin. Steps to disable and re-enable are in this article: Watch DRM content on Firefox.
Is this the error you're getting? see screenshot
Do you have the latest Widevine version ?
Make sure you have the latest Widevine version (4.10.2391.0).
- Tools -> Add-ons -> Plugins
You can toggle DRM off/on to see if that makes Firefox (re)load DRM components.
- Settings -> General: Play DRM
You can possibly check the GMP XHR requests in the Browser Console if this doesn't work.
