Netflix & Silverlight error
 
I am a Linux Mint 14 using Netflix quite successfully until MS decided to update Silverlight. Now the screen locks on a download page, with no way around it.
It's pointless attempting the download as it's an .exe and will screw up my machine.
Does anyone have a suggestion, please?

The netflix-desktop application works really well for me- and takes almost no effort beyond a few lines of code (Confirmed working as recently as this morning for me).

Still nothing at my end. It's a Firefox download which halts at a download page.
Any other suggestion, please?

Can you give us the error messages you are getting?

Just to verify you have Wine installed right? That link I posted above is actually the Windows version of Firefox, since NF refuses to support Linux.

Turns out it's linked to Firefox.
Eric Hoover gave the answer.
In the terminal rm -Rf ~/.wine-browser will delete this file, restart Netflix and it automatically loads the correction.

Glad to hear it worked out for you.
