Do you have enabled "Resist Fingerprinting" if you check ‘’’Resist Fingerprinting’’’ on the ‘’’about:config’’’ page as this affects the user agent?


’’’Avast AntiTrack’’’ is also known to cause this issue.

Generally speaking, Firefox uses the Widevine plugin to work with DRM (copy protected) media. The Netflix error could be a problem with using either a too-old or a too-new version of Widevine. Since Firefox normally updates Widevine automatically in the background, this problem may go away on its own, but hopefully we can get some tips on speeding that up and share them in all the new Netflix threads.
