Each of the threads below is someone reporting the same problem (which I also have), with the same timing. Suddenly on 21 April 2021 all (?) major streaming sites started to give "The WidevineCDM plugin has crashed" message and ceased to work .

No suggested fix works. Reinstalling does not help, toggling DRM application does not help. It was obviously the update (at least for users on 78.10.0esr with OS X 10.9.5) that did it. Is there some way to get this registered as a bug?

Hello, I'm having issues with Google Widevine CDM on Amazon Prime Video, Spotify but also some websites using HTML5. YouTube videos work correctly.

I've checked all topics in standard Firefox support, but did not find solution.

It looks like Google Widevine CDM is not working correctly, but it appears as active and actual version in browser settings. I'm not sure, if this is somehow related, but recently I migrated from Windows 7 to Win 10 doing upgrade, not fresh install (not sure though, if on Win 7 it was working, or not. I wasn't using Prime or Spotify while on Win 7). Today I tried to reinstall the browser, so I have fresh settings right now, but still the same issue. Will appreciate any support.

Regards, Marcin

I was having the "PRR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR" Secure Connection Error and after going through that whole list of fixes ending with me deleting my firefox account and creating a new one the issue is still happening on sites like youtube after trying to play a video for a bit so i disovered that the two default plugins were giving these messages: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. will be installed shortly", "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly." and wont install so at this point I think the final issue I need to solve to 100% fix things is to get these two plugins to finally install but I don't know how to force it to do that

Hello,

This has been going on for few months and it doesn't seem to be going away (in fact, I see more complaints about similar issue around the net), so here it goes.

Up until Firefox 87 with Widevine 4.10.1582.2 I had no problems with Netflix. Then Firefox 88 with Widevine 4.10.2209.1 was released and every time I watch an episode of a show the screen freezes for several seconds while sound goes on. If you rewind and reach that point again, it doesn't happen again. However it's inredibly annoying when it happens at the climax of every episode.

I stopped updating Firefox beyond 87, but then Widevine 4.10.1582.2 stopped being supported and had to update or not being able to watch Netflix at all. While I can still watch movies, I had to start using Edge to watch tv shows (and I really don't want to do that).

I haven't noticed it happening on a movie, possibly because the last few minutes are credits which I don't watch. But there's a possibility it only happens on episodes. This is only my suspicion, but it happens right after the episode finishes buffering, so maybe it has something do with that or maybe some process with next episode is beginning while the current one is still being watched.

I'm not exactly sure it's something you can fix on your end since it seems to be involving Widevine, but would be great if something could be done.

When I try to use a platform like Netflix i get repeated error messages that WidevineCdm has crashed. This happens also in other browsers. I am not very tech savvy, but I've tried all the solutions I was able to understand on here and through Google, but nothing seems to fix the problem. Can any one advise?

Not sure if this helps, but here is one of the many crash reports I've sent: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/75e61622-4282-4a83-b86e-9861a0210422

Hello,


since the last automatic update of the Widevine Content Decryption Module (updated today, automatically) the plugin keeps crashing when I want to watch "TV" waipu.tv. I have already re-installed firefox etc, it just won't work.

I have submitted several crash reports, this is the latest: bp-7bc4b8a4-e59b-4f7e-a840-7c0720210422

See screenshot of "crashed"-notice below.

What can I do to fix this?
