  1. Sorry. Just forget all the below. Same prob in IE11 but as I don't use IE11 I did a
    reset on it and now Netflix works properly. This is better than going through all that
    FF redoing crap. Didn't seem that simple yesterday. It happens. (y)

    Can log into my Netflix account but the home page will not open any movies.
    The first movie listed is large and has a 'play' tab and it plays.
    There are only 3 partial rows of movies below that but none will open.
    If I go into browse and hit on, say, sci-fi, I can open those movies from there.
    Here's what fixes this but I hate it. Running Firefox ESR 38.7.1 and I reset/refresh
    to original program. This allows Netflix to work properly but screws my FF
    screens so bad, deletes most of my addons and extensions, other crazy stuff.
    Prior FF reset I did several system restores from previous days and weeks.
    No joy. So I recovered my latest system image and at least got all my
    customizations in FF back but Netflix not working again.
    Luckily I have a smart tv that runs Netflix just fine. Too picky? Hell yeah.
    But I take my laptop to other places and link HDMI to non-smart tv's to watch
    movies with others.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks. :cool:
