Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hi,

we're not using OpenH264 Video Codec for Netflix. Perhaps you have to install Rosetta. See Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ or Prime error after installing Firefox version 84 on Mac.

Note that Netflix uses Widevine to play DRM protected videos.

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