Marcia, Kev, any word back from Netflix? Do we have an escalation path here if we haven't heard anything back?
Haven't heard anything back from my contact listed in Comment 4.

Pinged again.
We received a ping back that this is in process and should be done later today. They also indicated that they will adjust things so that we won't have the same issue with Firefox 6 and 7.

Got mail that it has been fixed.  I personally verified it works on the Firefox 5 beta.

Should we continue to track this to make sure it's working with 6 as well? Or are we "god enough" to call done?
