Disabling DRM completely

more options

I have disabled DRM content, why is firefox annoying me to enable it each time I load a website that requires it. What seems to be now the general topic, even for a simple blog... If I disabled it, I do not want to be prompted to enable it back. I know how to enable it.

You can set these two prefs to false on the about:config page to disable DRM.

  • browser.eme.ui.enabled = false
  • media.eme.enabled = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. If you get the warning page, you can click the "Accept the Risk and Continue" button.

That is based on the site that controls their DRM process. Browser can disable but sites determine the DRM access. You should contact the site your having DRM issues with.

Both these options should be controlled by the "Play DRM-controlled content" tick in Tools / Options menu. Definetely. So, no need to use 'about:config' magic and break warranty)))
