Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hey,

thanks a lot for your answer! The problem actually wasn't Firefox. I needed to install something on Ubuntu to be able to play .mp4 files and that has solved the issue.

How about downloading another version to a folder and run it from there. Then test Netflix without signing into your Firefox account.
