After I upgraded to Ubuntu 16.10 I am experiencing an immediate crash when trying to watch a video which uses the Widevine plugin.

Hope someone can help


Seems like to be a problem in firefox: In Firefox 50.0beta2 the plugin doesn't crash any more.

  • I just tried it on a second PC and there it works fine with Firefox 49.0.2 and Ubuntu 16.04 (also added that in the question) – clel Oct 29 '16 at 8:11

According to Mozilla this is a problem with Firefox 49: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1315934

It is fixed with Firefox 50.
