    When using either Firefox or Safari, recently, to watch instant movies via Netflix, the browser unexpectedly closes. Sometimes it gets to the buffering stage. I've cleared all my private data (history, caches, cookies...) and redownloaded flash/shockwave. I have the most current Silverlight too.

    Any ideas? It worked perfectly since I've had it (about a month or two), up until today.

    Try restarting your computer completely. I had this happen about a week ago (while doing a marathon session of The Office Season 3), and it bugged me to no end. I restarted, and everything was right as rain.

    Otherwise, try creating a new user account and opening up Safari in there.
