Netflix and Prime Video do not allow video playing and give me errors associated with Widevine. Thing is, all the threads I have found about Widevine issues for Firefox on MacOS say that new widevine is not supported on or before MacOS 10.11.
I am using a MacbookPro 13" 2012
Running MacOS 10.15.17 (Catalina)
Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit)
Installed Firefox 78.9.0esr as suggested roll back solution and it did not change anything. Reinstalled Firefox 90.0.2 and now Firefox Plugins section is is telling me that "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly." but it doesn't seem to change. I have always stayed updated on MacOS and Firefox versions, and suddenly in early 2021 this has become an issue that persists to date.
Is the current status of Widevine for Firefox on MacOS BROKEN?
There are no roll backs that seem to work, and I can't find anyone else with my MacOS and Firefox versions that are reporting the same problem. Streaming is not only the way of the future, it has been the standard for media viewing for over 5 YEARS. Firefox needs to figure how to make widevine work from the get go or it will quickly go the way of the dinosaur.
I don't WANT to use Chrome (thought I currently do for Netflix), please don't suggest that as a solution.
