No one around who knows a bit more as clueless me??
Cannot test it myself, and no idea if it runs at all in KM, just googled around a bit:
Netflix seems infamous for intentionally
closing the door at smaller browsers. The usual workaround for such cases: try sending such stubborn sites a fake _useragent_ string (browser+system info), on which website servers can decide which page content they send you. Changing UA doesn't help always, but worth trying.
Tip from here https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?t=15452
and here http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r31699881-Pale-Moon-NetFlix-My-List-User-Agent-Fix
was reported working in Palemoon with this fake useragent string in about:config
general.useragent.override = Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv:45.9) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.9
If doesn't help, someone else succeeded after additionally deleting old cookies and cache.
If doesn't help, would try brandnew KM
-dev version, KM-Goanna 20180408 from here:
Current KM-Goanna versions are portable
, with own profiles inside their program folder, that means they doesn't touch your older KM-versions if you unzip the new one into another folder
. Portable KM-versions can run fully independant. The only prob is that you may have to struggle with write permissions restricted by modern Windows.
For videos it's recommended to also install one of the 3 LAV decoders in KM-Goanna, from same post. Unzip them into the KM root folder.
Before going to Netflix, fake the useragent too of course.
Perhaps you know how to change this pref, but most people not.
There are several methods. Manually:
Open page about:config and look for this pref:
By default it doesn't exist yet. If necessary right-click in the page and create it as "string" type. Value as above (for FF45.9)
(If someone is using an older version of KM-Pro: can not work this way, because a site-switcher with 1 fix global UA is hardcoded in it. To use different global UAs, the site-switcher extension in Pro must first be disabled. Possible by setting the useragent.Count pref to 0 (zero) in about:config)
Back to Netflix: if this UA really helps (?), and if you're using KM-Goanna, you can get this UA switch automatically whenever you visit Netflix. If you add 3 more prefs with this same value:
general.useragent.override.netflix.com = Mozilla...
general.useragent.override.netflximg.net = Mozilla...
general.useragent.override.nflxext.com = Mozilla...

If you want a macro
for handling useragent switching by a menu, I'd recommand useragents2018:
This macro can handle all options available in KM-Goanna, incl. Gecko/FF compatibility options, and automatic agent-switching by site (Automatic: Add Site...)
2 files to download, the 7z from first post (into KM root folder) and the js-list from third post (put into ../K-Meleon/browser/defaults/preferences)
