Firefox 103.0 and 102.0 on Ubuntu 18.02 both break netflix playback. None of the previous workarounds appear to resolve the issue
Ever since the update to Firefox 102 and continuing in 103, Netflix gives a F7701-1003 when attempting playback, naturally playback works fine(as it always does every time FF does this with each new release) in Chrome and Brave. All previous suggested work arounds do not resolve this issue.
Since no one answered this question the last 5 times people had to ask similar questions I will repeat this basic question.
Does Mozilla not test their updates prior to release?

Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla, run it from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release
I don't have Netflix, but let go see if I can stream a trailer or something.
What desktop? X11 or Wayland?
Can you provide more detail and screenshot showing how Firefox is breaking Netflix?

This is difficult to replicate without steps or screenshot of the issue, but I found a trailer. Test and see how it goes. https://www.netflix.com/title/81248392
