So I have had this extremely frustrating issue with Netflix that apparently only a couple of people have had, so I just want to know if anyone else here has run into it.
I have a G74SX-XT1 with a clean install of Win7 on a SSD. I am using two monitors. My computer runs great, the only issue is that when I fullscreen Netflix, it does not ask if I want to keep it fullscreen when I click out of it.
- This does not seem to be an issue with Silverlight as any other site using a Silverlight video player WILL ask if I want to stay fullscreen.
- I did not just accidentally tell Netflix I don't want it to stay fullscreen. There is no record of any Netflix permissions in the Silverlight settings, so I cannot just change it there. There is just nothing, my permissions are completely empty.
- I have tried 3 different web browsers and they all behave the same way.
- I have reinstalled everything I could possibly reinstall rather than Windows itself. It's annoying but I don't care quite enough to reinstall everything on my computer since the SSD was such a pain to get stable. I can't recall if it worked properly before I cleaned off the factory image; I doubt I even tested it.
I really have no idea what the reason could possibly be. I can only believe it's a problem on Netflix's end, but like I said I've only seen 1 or 2 instances of this problem on the internet, and nobody was able to help them (everyone assumes it's a simple problem of changing the permission etc).
At the end of the day I can always just watch Netflix on my PS3 on my second screen, but it's just one of those things that bugs you because there's no reason it SHOULDN'T work...? lol
