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

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.*/questions/1334863 WidevineCdm crashes on Firefox 78.10 (Mac OS)
