    Went to Netflix for first time today and am getting the "Safari cannot find server message". Tried googling a solution and found people suggesting to remove Silverlight completely and reinstall. Gave it a try and didn't seem to help. Any other recommendations? Netflix is currently still working on Firefox, whereas on Chrome it is not. I'm a Safari user myself and would be nice to only use one browser rather than pull up Firefox whenever I'm in the mood to watch something. Thanks in advance!

    Netflix overall has had some outage problems recently when the Amazon cloud services went down. Might be a hangover from that outage?

    Did you try clearing your Safari internet cache?

    If the website is working in Firefox, then the issues is most likely a cache file. You can also use the website Down Right Now. I find the reporting there is pretty good, as far as websites up or down status.
