Netflix works now directly in Google Chrome: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/google-chrome/

Should be fixed now, sorry about that

I ran the following command to accomplish what s_warlock suggested. Worked for me.

$ (echo "REGEDIT4";echo "";echo "[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Wine\\DllOverrides]";echo "\"*msvcr100\"=\"builtin\"";) > "/tmp/winefix.reg";WINEPREFIX=~/.netflix-desktop /usr/bin/wine regedit "/tmp/winefix.reg"

There is a work around to get firefox to work on 1.7.9.
I tested a solution that launchpad had. https://bugs.launchpad.net/netflix-desktop/+bug/1265367
I made a change on the register. The following value
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\DllOverrides]
"*msvcr100"="builtin"

Apparently, the "Couldn't load XPCOM" error is a regression in wine-silverlight 1.7.9-1. At lease one person resolved it by downgrading to 1.7.8-2.

This package was working for me, but broke recently. When I launch it I get a Firefox error dialog that says: "Couldn't load XPCOM". I tried reinzstalling wine-silverlight and netflix-desktop and removed the ".wine" and ".netflix-desktop" directories, but it made no difference. Any ideas?

You guys should really try the pipelight package if you continue having trouble with netflix-desktop
