firefox-60.5.0-2.el7.centos.x86_64 and Netflix

Hi all,

Since the last upgrade to firefox-60.5.0-2.el7.centos.x86_64 on my
CentOS 7, it is no longer possible to watch Netflix with my Firefox, it
always says that "Firefox is installing components needed to play the
audio or video on this page. Please try again later."
But nothing happens and Netflix is no longer readable with Firefox...
I tried downgrading to firefox-60.4.0-1.el7.centos.x86_64 and al is now
correct with Netflix...
Anyone had experienced the same behavior ?

Bernard Lheureux:
I think this might be something to do with an incompatible 'Widevine' plugin for playing DRM content

See:

One workaround is detailed in Comment #5 :

(I haven't tried this myself)

Yep. It isn't just you. The Spotify webplayer stopped working for me
when I upgraded to firefox-60.5.0-2.el7.x86_64 on RHEL7.6 WS.

Downgrading to firefox-60.4.0-1.el7.x86_64 restored the ability to use
Spotify.

Really not the answer I expect...
I hope a corrected version of Firefox will soon be released !
