think the most common way to use Netflix is just install Firefox for Windows via Wine and watch Netflix there.
Nothing on the panels will respond to any kind of mouse clicks. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Nowhere on the visible portion of this box is there a place to click and accept a license agreement. The only option I have is to close the box and try again -- which gets me nowhere.
Anyone have an idea what I may be missing or doing wrong?

This caught me out a few times until I figured it out...

Apparently the "OK" I need to click is located at the lower portion of that box, and although it will let me adjust it size wise left to right, it won't adjust top to bottom.

Release left mouse button. If you need to move window more, move mouse cursor to bottom of window, press and hold left mouse button, and move mouse cursor to top of screen again. If "super gigantic 250,000 pixel tall window," (lol) repeat many times.
When you see the bottom of the window (or at least the button(s) you are looking for), release mouse button and alt key.
The above is handy when you wish to move a window and the top of it is "above" the top of your visible workspace...

That sucks. The good news is, when you finally get Compholio's linux Netflix stuff installed, it generally works really well (so it's probably well worth the hassle). It's odd that you're experiencing difficulty, though. I haven't installed/set it up in the last 1½ months, but I've probably done so ~20 times on computers aged from approximately 10 years old to "they just got it an hour ago," and all of them went fine. Even on two computers that I couldn't get the graphics driver installation/configuration figured out and, therefore, had no video capability (the Netflix "app" was unable to stream video in both cases, lol, but it installed and the browsing function worked)...
