Bug Description

If I try Chrome, of course Netflix is extra stupid and asks for me to install the Windows 8.1 app, so I have no choice but to use firefox. When I use firefox with a user agent changer, I am prompted every time to "install silverlight". How is this even possible when the whole point of pipelight is to run silverlight inside of a linux browser? I appreciate the effort, but it seems the real solution is to boycott Netflix until they pull their heads out of their behinds and start supporting Linux... How hard can it POSSIBLY BE if they support Chrome OS which is basically the Linux kernel with a closed GUI?

Hi there have you tried to type this command into your terminal and restarting Firefox?
sudo pipelight-plugin --create-mozilla-plugins
This command is required for Firefox to detect pipelight plugins, you have to do this every time you add a new plugin.
Also newer versions of Ubuntu are known to cause issues with AppArmor you can find more information about this here.
