Try going into about:preferences#plugins and enabling “Widevine Support”. Websites like this usually have some DRM associated with it, which will require Widevine. You can also toggle “Enable Adobe Flash Support” as well in that same preference page.

Let us know if that helps!


both plugins were already enabled.

disabling and re-enabling plugins has no effect

Hi @dilligaff4444, thanks for reaching out!
This has been a known issue for sometime now. Unfortunately, due to timing, its unlikely that this fix will come before 1.0. That being said, I can confirm that this issue (along with many others) will not carry over to 1.0.
