Widevine Content Decryption Module 4.10.2209.1

To all Firefox gurus:

RE: Widevine Content Decryption Module 4.10.2209.1

Have Firefox 78.10.0esr (64-bit) with PLug-in Widevine Content Decryption Module 4.10.2209.1

Have (Late-2012) Mac Mini with Mac OSX 10.9.5 (A MUST HAVE, due to it being the last version that is compatible with Nikon and other software no longer supported)

So, upgrading Mac Operating System is not an option.

And, upgrading Firefox does not seem to be an option, because 78.10.0esr is the last compatible version with the Mac 10.9.5 operating system.

The issue I am having is when I go to read the online edition of the newspaper. a long thin yellow bar appears at the top of the screen with "The Widevine Cdm has crashed. (Learn More)" and further down on the page it shows, "Video Player Error Sorry, there has been a technical error with this video stream." with an error code that relates to "Digital Rights Management" . . . It is checked in Preferences > General.

So, not sure what the problem is.

This has occurred within the past two weeks ONLY.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Thank you, in advance.

I'm not able to stream any content on Netflix, Amazon Prime, channel 4, 5 using firefox. The error message is 'The widevine CDM plugin has crashed'. I looked up in preferences/ extensions and themes/ plug ins and it seems like the widevine CDM plug-in was automatically updated today (21.4.2021) and now it's crashing. My firefox is 78.10, the latest for OSX 10.9. Can anyone suggest how to resolve this ?

When I try to use a platform like Netflix i get repeated error messages that WidevineCdm has crashed. This happens also in other browsers. I am not very tech savvy, but I've tried all the solutions I was able to understand on here and through Google, but nothing seems to fix the problem. Can any one advise?

Not sure if this helps, but here is one of the many crash reports I've sent: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/75e61622-4282-4a83-b86e-9861a0210422

Also, when I go to ¨about firefox¨ it says, it´s updated but under it it says ¨you are currently on the esr update channel¨. What does that mean?

It appears to be a known bug, however for a long time now, no fixes.

OK, I'm having a LOT of trouble with my sync, and bookmark archiving. If I export my bookmarks as html, and import them, none are in folders anymore! As far as I can tell, asking Firefox to "restore" from a particular date does something similar. The only way I understand to back up my bookmarks, and more them to another machine in an organized way is with the Profile folder (and profile.ini file). When I share that folder and that file, everything is copied exactly, and organized properly. So that being the case, what the h are "backup", "restore", "import" and "export" useful for?

If there some writeup on EXACTLY how to manage bookmark backups in Firefox? I've never seen one. You'd like to believe that when you "restore" your bookmarks, they end up organized the way they were originally.

Netflix keeps crashing the minute I open it on Firefox due to the Widevine plugin. This has been happening ever since Widevine's latest update about a week ago. I've since learned that their latest update doesn't support MAC OS X 10.9.5, which is what I have. The recommendation on this forum was to install an older version of Widevine. I've looked everywhere and I haven't been able to find out how to do that or where to even find an older version. Widevine's website is not helpful.

Hoping you can help!

Regardless of how many tabs I have open or what I am doing on them, Firefox is practically guaranteed to crash at least once during my session. More than likely, it will be two or three times before I can get back to using it effectively. I have tried going through the troubleshooting steps to no avail; Firefox and Windows are both up to date, as are, I believe, my drivers. Troubleshoot Mode keeps the app from crashing, but the individual windows crash within 30 seconds. Attached are the almost 20 crash reports I have submitted, I sincerely hope there is something I can do because I really don't want to use Chrome. bp-2ea57dc6-e2c6-4cbb-8629-797c60210501 bp-3e10c8f1-e7b6-41a2-b716-1983c0210501 bp-512e036d-c6d1-4043-b350-13ecd0210501 bp-8008ed25-abde-4691-949b-8f9f50210501 bp-317e0ae2-97dc-4ec0-8e9c-63fff0210501 bp-359f2689-619b-4efa-8323-536280210501 bp-b0c10f58-5b84-4d12-8ee3-669d20210501 bp-cfc500fb-bb14-416b-a66e-3a9c50210501 bp-5d90aaad-0c1b-4416-916a-e909b0210501 bp-2f043c8a-2a3d-4c8b-8314-89b8a0210501 bp-a32d18c8-d584-417c-81e6-e4f130210501 bp-be384a9a-7131-4555-b50e-0e8660210501 bp-ede73694-d61b-440a-9785-353910210501 bp-ae1a5c51-052a-4ba3-8808-c34eb0210501 bp-bf3d2b4a-949a-45e0-a8f3-360640210501 bp-bcb58d4b-0ed8-42dd-92ba-405340210501 bp-bab62aab-b411-4b48-b07e-910a30210501

Hi, Firefox is not opening 192.168.8.1 since 2 days ago. I have changed service providers, but now I cannot access my MIFI router's admin page. The little spinning wheel goes on forever, til I get an error message "The server at 192.168.8.1 is taking too long to respond and has timed out". No matter how many times I try, or in safe mode, I cannot connect. As I am changing service providers, I need to access the router to administrate the new simcard.

I hope someone can help? Thank you!

I have a rather weird problem with firefox. I need to open websites twice to get them to work. To try and explain what I mean here is a how i currently need to use the browser

Open tab,

type in web address/search,
hit enter

tab is stuck infinitely loading ( i cant refresh, I cant type a different adress, that tab is just stuck loading) open a second tab

type in the exact same address/search
hit enter and for some reason it now loads instantly

And it isnt just new tabs its the same story to load any and all webpages say I am on a page of google search results click a link stuck infinitely loading open new tab repeat the same search click the same link, for some reason now loads instantly

Also websites that require the dumbest thing in history, captchas, they are simply unusable, doesnt matter if I use the pictures or the audio, even when I get it right it just reloads the pointless captcha box. Why a captcha is necessary sometimes just to load google.com makes less than zero sense, even if I was a bot what possible harm could I do by loading a search bar? but I digress

I am on the latest version and I do have some addons installed:

privacy badger, dark reader, ublock origin, tree style tabs, privacy settings, ghostery,dontaccept webp


but even starting firefox with add ons disabled the problem is still there.


Anyone got any ideas for this? thanks
