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

I am sure if you've opened this thread, you are already familiar with the issue: Any time you try to stream Netflix or Prime, your Widevine plug-in you didn't even know you had crashes and you can't watch anything.

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

Please help?

So, I have been having this issue for quite a while and I'm not sure how to fix it. The issue is whenever I try to stream video and/or music, the page shuts down and a little yellow bar appears at the top saying, " The WidevineCdm Plugin has crashed." And I'm not sure how to fix this. This happens when I am trying to stream certain things such as Hulu, Spotify, and Crunchyroll. I have tried various options like switching DRM on and off, submitting crash reports, and even restarting my my computer. But those don't work.

If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. Thank you, and have a good day! <3

My Widevine CDM Plug-in just crashed! I checked my Firefox settings and it looks like the Widevine plug-in just updated late last night, and is up to date. I fear the new update might be incompatible with my Firefox 78.10.Oesr / or my OSX 10.9.5 but I'm not sure. I'm not a mac savvy person but I'm always ready to learn. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi. I tried updating firefox and add-ons. But nothing is working, I keep getting the same error. What can I do? none of the streaming platforms are working. 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?

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

Before April 21st, 2021 I never had any issues with playing videos on Disney Plus, Netflix, etc. But since Widevine updated I cant play any videos without Widevine crashing. I reload the page (as it suggests) and it still wont work. I refreshed Firefox and that didn't work. I also tried to chat with Widevine but their page said "Widevine is a technology provider and we do not provide support to end users. Please contact your application or service provider for support on your particular issue."

Does anyone know what I can do to solve this problem? I really appreciate your help!

I'm on a Mac and the version Im using is 10.9.5. My firefox browser is 78.10.0esr (64 bit).

Hi,

I was looking at basically entire collection of addons with different keywords and it seems like I'm still overlooking something. Everything I found, related to taking the screenshots, is based on manual click within an addon but this is NOT what I'm looking for.

Instead, what I would like to do is to define exact URL link and quantity of minutes. Then, assuming that Firefox is running, the addon I'm asking for would automatically take a screenshot every defined quantity of minutes on that defined URL webpage and save it on hard drive on exact defined folder.

The webpage I'm (mostly) interested for contains dynamic numerical values that are in average changing approximately four times per second. I don't need every second, not even every minute. I would take automated screenshots around 96 times per day which is one screenshot every 15 minutes. But quantity of minutes could be changed by me.

Additional problem is that wanted view of the webpage is where scrolling element is approximately on the middle of webpage content. Having said that, I definitely don't want that screenshots are taken from the top because in this case, on screenshot would be missing important graphical data. Solution could be that, instead of image based screenshot, entire webpage is copied into a PDF screenshot every X minutes and file saved. That would assure me that needed content is saved.

The reason why I'm looking for such tool is because I would like to compare the graphical non-stop 24 hours per day changing numbers. Compare them between two different moments in the past. The website is not saving past values so screenshots are the only solution.

I have already seen several different addons related to screenshots but neither of them is offering everything I mentioned:

- automated taking and saving (downloading) with or without my presence in a form of (usually) browsing other websites - ability to define URL so screenshots are taken automatically from this URL - ability to define frequency (one screenshot per every X defined minutes) - automated saving on hard drive

Could anyone please tell me what should I use for that?

Thank you in advance.

Last week (14 April 2021) I was able to watch videos on netflix and hulu. This week (21 April 2021), however, a yellow bar appears across the top of the page, saying, on the left-hand side: "The WidevineCdm plugin has crashed Learn more...", and, on the right-hand side, "[Reload page] [Submit a crash report]". Repeated submissions of crash reports, as well as repeated reloading of the page, results in exactly the same: same yellow bar, same inability to watch videos. Likewise, clicking on "Learn more" merely results in the widevine.com page, which states that the company does not service end-users. In addition, last week (14 April 2021), I purchased a video on youtube, and watched part of it. This week (21 April 2021), wanting to watch the rest of the video, all I encounter is: "Your browser can't play this video. Learn more." Clicking on "Learn more" yields "Your browser is up to date. You can use YouTube's latest features!" Repeat ad nauseam. So, it seems that, even though my browser is up-to-date, I am still unable to watch videos on either youtube, hulu, or netflix.
