Hi Alan,

I sometimes watch Netflix on my Computer or Laptop using my browser but 
I just use Google-Chrome browser.

I have just tried to use Firefox browser but it did not work. Something 
about installing DRM. Needs investigating.

Don't normally use Firefox so its not a problem for me. Chrome is fine.
