I tried to play a movie on https://netflix.com but I got the Netflix error 32660. OS: Windows 10, 64 Bit Firefox: 52, 64 Bit I tracked the problem down to the file: FIREFOX-PROFILE/storage/persistent/chrome/.metadata It's 0 KB in size. Workaround/manual fix: If I delete the ".metadata" file and restart Firefox, Netflix works. After deleting the ".metadata" file and playing something on Netflix the following new folder appears: FIREFOX-PROFILE/storage/default/https+++www.netflix.com/ I guess the ".metadata" file maybe somehow blocked the creation of this folder!?!? Note: This is not about MP4/h264 or DRM. Both is completely disabled and I had to make any changes to it to get Netflix running.

Andrew - does storage/persistent/chrome/.metadata belong to you?

(In reply to Anthony Jones (:kentuckyfriedtakahe, :k17e) from comment #1) > Andrew - does storage/persistent/chrome/.metadata belong to you? I didn't create any files manually in the Firefox profile folder. (if that's what you mean!?) So I guess Firefox created that file somehow.
Jan thinks we have different code for handling corrupted .metadata in storage/chrome vs. storage/default (for content). He's going to take a look.
