I'm wondering why I have to use Silverlight to play Netflix movies. When I opened Netflix and selected a movie to play in my Firefox browser a gray page opened up and the only option was to play the movie using Silverlight. I have a sneaking suspicion that it's a requirement by Netflix as Netflix is partnered up with Silverlight, a Microsoft product and has some sway over what's able to be played with this addon. Why is there no alternative. I really like the new Firefox but still we're wanting for just a little more control of who does what on our machine.

Respectfully, Tom V.

Netflix determines which program their movies are to use. Firefox has no control over it.
