In order to view the Hikvision cameras or NVR/DVR using Firefox, you need to install the Firefox ESR version. ESR stands for “Extended Support Release”, which means that even though a newer version of Firefox may be out, the ESR version will still support the plugins for an extended period of time. In other words, the ActiveX plugin is supported by Firefox ESR.

Step 1. Download and install the Firefox ESR version. Note: This will overwrite your existing version of FireFox if you had it installed previously. However it will keep all of your Configurations, Favorites and Settings.

Step 2. Type your NVR’s IP address into the address bar. For our example, since we are connected to the same network, we will use our NVR’s local IP address: http://192.168.1.100:82 (where 82 is the http port, by default it’s 80).
Step 3. Install the ActiveX plugin when prompted.
Step 4. Re-enter the username and password. Check if you can see the live view.

Any thoughts on the following? I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Windows 10 appears to have a new browser called Microsoft Edge. I am unable to see Live View when opening my Hikvision cams (DS-2CD2032-I 5.3.0) with Microsoft Edge. It keeps requesting me to download and install the plug-in (webcomponents). I have uninstalled webcomponents and re-installed it multiple times with Edge closed. I get the same request every time I try to open with Edge and Live View is not available. I am able to see Live view when I use IE 11 and Google Chrome.
