Hi I'm running Linux Mint and Netrunner OS(Kubuntu) on my computers. And I haven't noticed the Adobe DRM plugin yet, does anyone know when the GNU Linux version of Firefox is going to include this plugin?

I don't know, but I see this in about:config in my Firefox 40b2.


Is there some plugin we are supposed to see in Add-ons Manager?

Don't know where I would test it.

It should show up in the Add-ons Manager's Plugins tab as "Primetime Content Decryption Module provided by Adobe Systems, Incorporated"

In Linux make sure you have ffmpeg installed. DRM will not work without it.
