Firefox will not play netflix streaming smoothly after 15 - 20 minutes, but Safari will play it smooth for hours on end. Whats the issue? anyone else have this problem?

I use Firefox exclusively as my browser, and have never had a problem with Netflix playing smoothly.

I no longer use Firefox as my primary browser but I've never had a problem with it and Netflix. Actually, when I switched to Chrome and Netflix was problematic, I used Firefox to watch. Now Chrome and Netflix get along great but I still use FF as a backup (which is becoming increasingly rare). Are you using the latest release of FF? What kind of internet connection are you dealing with (primarily what speed)?

I use firefox as my default browser and usually have no problems with netflix, Although there are a few times where it will get kinda skippy and I have to back out a reload the movie. Not very often though.
