Why won't instantwatcher open up the movie?

I just switched to a new pc with Windows 7. When I click 'play' on a title in it just leads me to the Watch Instantly page on netflix. Whereas before on my other pc it would open up the movie in a separate window. What the what is going on? Its driving me buh-buh-buh-bonkers and seriously slowing down my movie watching!

Firefox remembers my netflix login info, so I don't think that is the issue. Is there some firefox setting that needs to change? Cookies? Does it have something to do with cookies? Its the cookies isn't it? My god help please I am having to click like 5 extra times to watch my movie of choice. This simply will not do!

PS Instantwatcher is the bees knees if you like netflix streaming.

Sounds like maybe you've got a popup blocker turned on.

Or "Open new windows as separate tabs" enabled.

Response by poster: Near as I can tell I have firefox set up the exact same way I had it on my old pc. I have AdBlockerPlus...which hasn't been a problem in the past, but just to be sure I disabled it for instantwatcher and netflix. Still no dice.
