Firefox 85 for Android Allows DRM-Protected Content to Play Again

From PC Mag: Firefox 85 rolled out for desktop users last week, and with it brought an end to Flash support. However, Mozilla also launched v85 for Android, and it added support for a feature all Firefox users will appreciate: the ability to play DRM-protected content.

As XDA Developers reports, this is a feature that has been re-enabled in the web browser. It was available before, but then removed in recent versions of the mobile browser. Now it's been quietly re-introduced, meaning content from services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video can be played directly in the browser rather than having to load a separate app.

By default, Firefox 85 on Android will ask your permission to start playing DRM-protected content. You can navigate to Settings > Site permissions > DRM-controlled content and change the option from "Ask to allow" to "Allowed" to remove the request pop-up every time such content is encountered. Alternatively, you can opt to block playback by default if you desire.
