Widevine Will Not Install

I have been trying to watch Netflix on Firefox, I made some security changes and at first thought that I may have caused the problem, but now I see that the add-on just fails to install. It just keeps the notification that it is installing. Is there a way to fix this issue?

Chosen solution

Do you see a XHR request in the Browser Console ?

Are you using a VPN or proxy or do you have security software that could be blocking this request ?

hello Yossin,

follow the instruction and link:

Wow, this is a great question. I can't think of any built-in setting in Firefox for this, but I see you can make some adjustments in your Netflix account settings

click the below link and follow

Try to toggle DRM off/on to see if that makes Firefox (re)load DRM components.

You should see a XHR request in the Browser Console for the Widevine plugin when you toggle DRM off/on, so you can check the console to see if there is an issue reported.

So I attempted to see if any issues are reported but none show up. I have tried toggling it many times to no avail. In the plugin menu, there is a yellow banner that states "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly." I have also toggled with it to see if it would fix the issue. I have also reinstalled Firefox and the problem persists.
