Mozilla mourned its own actions in a blog post:
We deeply, deeply want to move the industry to a different solution where each one of us remains our own authority over our computers and our lives. Were engaging on both the content and the technology sides to explore new technologies and welcome everyone whos interested to work on alternative solutions.
Since Chromes rise, Mozilla has hardly any weight to thrown around. Other browser vendors have already signed on for native DRM support, and if Mozilla doesnt play along, Firefox could gradually become useless for users of streaming video and audio services. Hypothetically, it would mean that Web goers would have to choose between Firefox and Netflix or Hulu, or Spotify. Firefox doesnt stand a chance against Game of Thrones.
Mozillas temporary solution is to make DRM implementation an option in Firefox. In addition, Mozilla details that it has surrounded the closed-source portion with an open-source wrapper, which allows it to monitor and better understand the scope of activities of the closed-source code.
