WidevineCdm plugin is crashing when I try to play videos on Netflix, Hulu, and Peacock. In the browser, Firefox 78.10.0esr on my Mac 10.9. A yellow strip at the top explains that the plugin crashed and asks me to send a report, which I do and asks me to restart the browser, which I do. Nothing works. I tried "safe mode." I tried clearing caches and what not. I think the browser was just updated today. I am totally unable to play videos on those web pages previous mentioned. I am able to watch youtube, however.

Have you received a solution? I'm desperate to get this corrected.

Unfortunately, Widevine 4.10.2209.1 no longer supports macOS 10.9 and 10.10 (minimum is 10.11). See:

Note: The current version of Google Widevine is no longer compatible with older macOS versions such as OS X 10.9 and 10.10. Only macOS versions 10.11 and above are supported.

Starting June 1st only Widevine 4.10.2209.1 is supported to play DRM protected content and can request a valid license.
