All working fine with Firefox 49.0.2 few day ago after the new update to Firefox 50.0 I can't play anymore Netflix, because Firefox 50 don't download the plugin like you can see in the pictures (No you can't see because Firefox 50.0 refuse to upload the picture). I Firefox 50 I can play Youtube, with Chrome I can play anythings I hope the update coming soon and fix the problem Thanks Cariboou

What plugin are you talking about? If the clip played using Firefox 49, then you should already have it.

Do you have the problem with other sites also?

Remove Firefox's plugin registry file Sometimes the pluginreg.dat file becomes corrupted. You can remove it and have Firefox re-scan for plugins. As a side effect, any plugins you have disabled on the Add-ons page probably will be re-enabled, so you'll need to go back to that page one more time.

Type about:support in the address bar and press enter.

Under the page logo on the left side, you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Folder. To its right press the button Show Folder. This will open your file browser to the current Firefox profile. Now Close Firefox.

Locate the above file. Then rename or delete it. Restart Firefox.
