with th recent update from firefox the widevine media transformer plugin that is required by dish online is not compatible, is there a fix for this now or in thenear future?
widevine media transformer plugin
I have been on several forums and the consensus seems to be that it take 2-6 months for the widevine developers to put an update to their plugin that will be compatible with firefox, This update allows customers of Dish Network, and Amazon Prime, to view online video of movies and Television shows they offer. Dish Network is a major provider, and has nation wide coverage areas so the plugin for mozilla firefox users is vital. I would rather not have to go to Internet Explorer for even this one site. I have been a faithful Mozilla user since 2007.

Self-hosted add-ons have to be fixed for every new version of Firefox. Two to 6 months for updating an add-on is ridiculous for a program which has a new version release every 6 weeks. If that extension was hosted at the official Add-ons website, Mozilla would take take care of "bumping" that extension, as long as it keeps working, for every new version of Firefox, as the new version is released.
See this thread from yesterday, I posted instructions about how to "bump" that extension for Firefox 7.
You can also use this extension to "bump" an already installed extension for compatibility with the currently installed version of Firefox.
