Tested on 2014-01-17 using latest nightly. If I am watching a movie in Netflix while in desktop mode and I switch to Metro mode, my video watching experience gets interrupted. The page prompts me to install Silverlight and so on.

There's a Netflix metro app in the machine. When Fx is in metro mode and the above happens, should we let the Netflix metro app handle that? Otherwise it's back to desktop mode in order to continue watching.

Steps:
1. While in desktop mode, go to Netflix and start watching a video/movie
2. Switch to Fx in metro mode

Expected: You can continue watching the video/movie.

Actual: You can't because you need to have Silverlight installed, but that doesn't work in Metro mode.

Maybe the Netflix metro app could be launched to take care of it.
