Widevine plugin won't get installed no matter how much I disable and re-enable DRM

Every time I've tried to use Spotify Web for the past week, I get an error message that states: "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio and video on this page. Please try again later."

I've tried to enable and re-enable DRM, it hasn't worked. On opening browser console, I get the following message:

1635858182761 Toolkit.GMP ERROR GMPInstallManager.simpleCheckAndInstall Could not check for addons: {"status":"failed","results":[{"id":"gmp-widevinecdm","result":"failed"}]}

I went into plugins and this is what showed under Widevine: Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly.

The only security software I have is McAfee ,and I'd gladly exempt Widevine from it's firewall, except I have no idea where it is or what to do.

Please advise. Thank you.
