Why won't Nwtflix play video on my PC

When I log into Netflix, I am presented with the standard interface with all the movie options, include a large background of the current movie they are promoting. If I wait a few seconds, the trailer begins playback and plays with audio until it's over, but, if I click the play button, the screen clears and I get a message that says "Whoops, something went wrong... Playback Error, there appears to be a problem with Firefox that is preventing Netflix from starting playback. Please be sure you are using the most recent version of Firefox.
