Anytime I try to use Netflix, a yellow bar appears that reads "Firefox is installing components needed to play the audio or video on this page. Please try again later." I have read that checking to see that if DRM is ticked. I have unticked and re-ticked that option and still nothing works. I try and see if Widevine Content is being installed. All it says, and it always says that it "..will be installed shortly". I have looked around and some people recommend to install Widevine manually, but it is confusing and the links don't work. Please help, I want to use Firefox since I get some weird lag on videos on Chrome.

hi, firefox will attempt to automatically download the file in the background from https://redirector.gvt1.com/edgedl/widevine-cdm/4.10.1440.19-win-ia32.zip - the common reason for an error here is if you have a custom hosts file that blocks access to the gvt1.com domain or if your network traffic is intercepted (by security software for example).

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

I've tried this countless times, and this still doesn't help ;(

I am not sure how I would go about finding the right file that blocks access to the gvt1.com. I use Advanced SystemCare as my Antivirus and computer care. So, could it possibly be ASC? Also, if anyone would know how I could go about fixing it through there if that is the problem.

I am not too sure what you mean to request, but here is a snip of what I saw in the Browser Console

PROBLEM SOLVED! There was something in my hosts file that was blocking it. It was something called "redirect.gvt1 .." something like that. I deleted that then restarted computer. And everything works fine!
