Hi Robertj, Thank you. The error code is F7121-3078. I have refreshed Firefox and allowed DRM. This worked last time but not now. Netflix says they do not support linux because of all the customisations. Any help would be gratefully received

Try starting Firefox in it's Safe Mode You've already Refreshed so, don't select Refresh on the dialog window.

Hi everyone, I'm having the same problem. I tried in safe mode but the error is still there. Any news about this issue?

(BTW I know some people solved by installing Chrome. I do not wish that. Better no netflix at all.)

IF I WANTED TO USE CHROME TO WATCH NETFLIX THEN I'D BE USING CHROME TO WATCH NETFLIX!!! I love the way everything is set up on my Firefox account and wish for either Netflix or Firefox to pull their heads out of their perspective parts and fix the issue PLEASE!!! Just curious, but is Google TRYING to force the world into their content so they can determine for me what they think is best??? Hmm....People who try playing God eventually find themselves holding hands with the Devil. (I'm sure someone smarter than me has said that quote before, but if no one has claimed it..)

To all :

Don't blame Firefox, but blame Netflix - cause what they say here is a lot of "you-know-what".

To those who are thinking about switching to Chrome - see :

What do you expect Firefox to do ?

The people who answer questions here are, for the main part, volunteers, users just like you, who are trying to help other users in their spare time.

Maybe you'd like to contact Netflix by filling in a form :

https://media.netflix.com/en/contact-us

You could also call them or start a live chat :

https://help.netflix.com/en

If you'd like to give feedback to Mozilla, you can use this link :
