Public bug reported:

Use case :

- Start a video on netflix.com ( with chrome/ubuntu user agent ) 
- Get a mysterious Netflix Error saying your browser is not supported
- Start Firefox and watch your video

Solution :

- Detects when browsing a website that may need widevine ( see how
firefox team did )

- ask user if he wants this non-free binary plugin

- Run some script like
https://gist.github.com/ruario/3c873d43eb20553d5014bd4d29fe37f1 that
would copy the widevine plugin in snap user directory
