DivX disappeared in Firefox

Post#1 » Fri Mar 17, 2017 3:10 pm

My DivX Player icon disappeared in firefox. It was there right after the script was updated(mid-2016) but disappeared a month ago. The problem is present on all video hosting sites.

Firefox 52.0 (32-bit)
ISP: Altimatel
Montreal, QC
Prefer DivX web player, but now i have to use VLC

Firefox has been announcing they will discontinue npapi support for over a year now. They finally ended it with Firefox 52. DivX webplayer is npapi, so it is gone until DivX develops something compatible. Chrome is following suit.
