Hi, Bryce,
Is this something you can take a look?
Thank you!

Priority: -- → P2

The code we have to interact with the CDM here hasn't changed in central recently. I've reached out to Widevine to see if they have any knowledge of things changing on their end that could cause this issue.

After discussion it appears this is not a Firefox specific issue, and thus not one we can fix. I think our best course of action is to track this and escalate with Widevine should crash rates spike. We expect to ship a new CDM in the current cycle (or the following cycle at the latest), in which case I would hope to see this resolved.

I marked it wontfix for 66 and affected for 67 so that we can track it for the next release as per Bryce's suggestion

There are no crashes in 65 or 65.0.1 release and no current crashes in 66 or 67. Suggest based on no volume that we just close this one out.

Closed per comment 6.
