Hello! Upon searching on Google, Netflix on Firefox can have a max resolution of 1280x720p. But recently, I noticed while watching on Netflix that the video quality was really poor, so I checked the stream details and saw that the resolution was only at 960x540p.

I have tried to create a new profile in Firefox to see if there would be any changes in the Netflix video quality and there was -- it was 1280x720p on the newly created profile while on my default profile it just remains stuck at 960x540p. I could easily just change my default profile, but it is too much of a hassle for me 'cause I don't want to have to re-download all my extensions and lose my bookmarks. Was wondering why this happened and how I could fix this?

If you have privacy.resistFingerprinting enabled in about:config then privacy.resistFingerprinting.target_video_res will apply with a default of 480.

Does it still happen in Troubleshoot Mode?

Hi! I checked and privacy.resistFingerprinting is disabled, put privacy.resistFingerprinting.target_video_res has a "480" value. Tried to check the resolution as well in Troubleshoot Mode, still no difference.

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