Firefox will get DRM copy protection despite Mozilla's concerns

Jeremy Kirk | May 15, 2014
Mozilla will upgrade its Firefox browser with copyright protection technology, fearing a loss of users if they can't play protected content from services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon.

To prevent tracking across a number of websites, Firefox will change the unique identifier presented to each site, making "it more difficult to track users across sites with this identifier," Gal wrote.

Mozilla will distribute its open-source sandbox, but the CDM will have to be downloaded from Adobe, Gal wrote.
