Hi everyone,

first: english isn't my mothertongue, so if someone is willing to redirect this question to the german support i would be very thankfull.

I try to use Netflix on this browser, and after getting some errors i checked my Plugins: Both OpenH264 and Widevine have a yellow banner below them, claiming that they will be installed shortly. Well i have this problem since weeks now. Anybody got any Tipps for me? Cheers Lukas

Hello Lukas,

Those two plugins will only be downloaded and installed when they are needed. For the OpenH264 plugin this means using WebRTC.

For the Widevine plugin this means visiting a website that play DRM protected media.

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