The solution may not be under drm.  Search the 'net.  Or contact
Firefox's developers directly.  Or use their community help feature on
their web site.

Try deleting all your cookies.  That solved a problem on one site I
frequent.  Could get anything displayed after 12 Nov 2016.  I now set
it to delete cookies when I quit the app.

At worst, purge Firefox Quantum entirely -- all settings, cookies,
history, etc. -- and reinstall.

I manually install mine.  Just download the zip file uncompress in my
Downloads directory, and copy firefox folder to /opt (as root).  Do the
same when it's upgraded.  Never any problems.

Me, too.  But I have DRM enabled.  Need it for a couple of sites.
