I have a 64 bit system running Vista home premium 6.0.6002 and Firefox 5.0.1. Can I load SIlverlight to stream netflix?

hello zuzann, first of all please urgently update firefox and all your existing plugins - there were dozens of highly critical security vulnerabilities fixed since firefox version 5!

Update Firefox to the latest release

& regarding silverlight: you'd have to install the 32-bit version, since firefox is also a 32-bit application at the moment and won't work with plugins that are 64bit.

They said to 'reset' firefox. I followed the instructions and now I can watch Netflix with no problem.
