since the last firefox update, I have noted that DRM has wrecked my viewing video experience. Most players malfunction by freezing, blacking out screen, video not playing, while sound can be heard, etc. Display downloads is also malfunctioning and will not display, when downloading free videos.
Also I have noted that video play has been sluggish and pausing a LOT in middle of streaming.
Its bad enough dealing with ISP and the like but DRM just plain kills the experience and is causing me to seriously look for a browser that actively circumvents DRM all together.
I been a big fan of mozilla for many years and its been my go to workhourse of a browser.
BUT the caving into DRM, rather than say to users that - hay because of DRM, we are unable to supply you with DRM content. we do not believe is forcing a flawed system onto you, which leaves you scratching your head as to why your unable to view content or impose DRM that deliberately breaks your hardware without informing you of the fact the DRM just broke your hardware.
your enabling bad behavior and awarding bad behavior by the content provider.
your actively screwing the end-user, because most end user has NO IDEA that its the DRM that is breaking their computer or wrecking their internet experience . Most if not all instances that DRM engages it fails to inform the end user that that is the reason that what they are tempting to do is being blocked by DRM.
I am actively using no-script blocker, ABP, and ghostery, private browsing, grease monkey
