WidevineCDM stopped working - how to fix?

more options

I have been having issues with some streaming sites e.g. Netflix, which give me a message at top of the browser that WidevineCDM has crashed (see attached img). Not sure what's going on, as my googling hasn't found anything helpful about how to deal with this. Help would be appreciated!

unfortunately, the WideVine and Mac lover affair has died. But mozilla will surely work on finding another methodology for the mac.

the alternative solution is to use safari.
