I just complete the statement of Hans: the really relativistic treatment of quantum phenomena is done in the framework of quantum field theory, QFT.

Since light always moves at light speed, the approximate treatment does not apply to photons. The founders always explained whether they were working relativistically or approximately, so there was never a mistake or a confusion on that score. But there were plenty of different mistakes and confusions in their work -- some surviving to this day.
