If you're just looking to watch netflix via firefox, you can use pipelight. I have been using it for a while now and it has been working great for me, no issues as of yet.

http://fds-team.de/cms/pipelight-installation.html

Instructions from the above link are as follows:

Install the required fonts:

sudo yum install cabextract
sudo rpm -i http://sourceforge.net/projects/mscorefonts2/files/rpms/msttcore-fonts-installer-2.6-1.noarch.rpm


Install the repo:

sudo wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/DarkPlayer:/Pipelight/Fedora_20/home:DarkPlayer:Pipelight.repo -O /etc/yum.repos.d/pipelight.repo


Install pipelight:

sudo yum install pipelight
sudo pipelight-plugin --update


Enable pipelight's silverlight plugin:

sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight


If you run into SELinux issues (assuming you're using it):

sudo setsebool -P unconfined_mozilla_plugin_transition 0


Something to note:
The pipelight repo includes the latest development branch of wine, which is sometimes ahead of the wine packages in the Fedora repos (but not always). As such, when the Fedora repo does get ahead of the pipelight repo, it will take priority over the pipelight repo and install the latest wine packages in the Fedora repo until the pipelight repo gets ahead of the Fedora repo again. As of yet, I personally have not had this cause any kind of issues or conflicts on my system.


Another note:
This also works in Fedora 18 and 19 (though I haven't personally tested it in 18 or 19). Just change 'Fedora_20' to 'Fedora_18" or 'Fedora_19' when installing the repo.


Also, this is my first time posting here. I apologize in advance if suggesting using third party repos is frowned upon.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that you may need a user agent switcher.
For FireFox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/user-agent-overrider/
For Google Chrome/Chromium: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-agent-switcher-for-c/djflhoibgkdhkhhcedjiklpkjnoahfmg

Once the user agent switcher is installed, just set it to a Windows version of Chrome/FireFox.
