I can't find widevine module on addons.mozilla.org
I am trying to use netflix on firefox-esr on linux. The documentation said that "Google Widevine CDM" is supposed to be installed automatically (like "OpenH264") but it is not. This module is not installed and can't be find on addons.mozilla.org I can't find nether the option DRM to tick or untick in my settings.
Do you know where I can find this plugin and how to install it please ?

The Widevine CDM is downloaded automatically by Firefox and can be disabled or enabled in the Add-ons Manager Plugins panel. (Click the Firefox menu button , click Add-ons and select Plugins.) For more information, see the Watch DRM content on Firefox article.

P.S. In case it applies to you, see: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322140 DRM option not available on firefox 84.0.2+build1 armhf for ubuntu 18.04
As I said the "Widevine CDM" is not automatically installed. (See screenshot). This plugin is not in my list and can't be find on the store.
I can't find nether the DRM option in the general settings.
I use the ESR version (78.7.0) and don't know if it could be the cause of the trouble ?

You may be better off asking in a Linux forum but see if one of these bug reports applies to you:
