If you have any extensions installed, Safari / Preferences - Extensions. Turn that off, quit then relaunch Safari. Try Netflix.
If it's not an extensions conflict, reset Safari from the menu bar, select the top 7 buttons, click Reset.

Hi. Thanks for your effort, but that didn't work. I don't have any extensions, and the reset didn't get rid of the problem (though I did lose a lot of stuff in the process).
Does anyone have any other ideas?

Am I really the only one with this problem? I've also noticed that it won't play in HD anymore. Anyone?

Well, unchecking "automatic graphics selection" seems to solve the full-screen and the HD problems, but I'm not sure I'm happy with that solution . . . .

I'm having the same problem... Where is it that I'm supposed to uncheck the "automatic graphics selection"?

Go to System Preferences > Hardware > Energy Saver. It's at the very top and therefore easy to overlook.

Though it looks like the problem was miraculously fixed—full screen is working again without my doing anything...

Thanks MarkPek, this solved my "full screen" problem with Netflix.

I had the same problem while watching Netflix instant play. Started after my most recent OS update. I click "full screen" once, nothing but a quick pause, then back to same screen as before. Click "full screen" again and screen blacks out, though audio continues. Netflix site was no help unless I called (which I didn't ) - I searched their site for 20 minutes and still unable to find any mention of others with same problem nor was I able to navigate to a window where I could explain the problem. Very frustrating, but glad for the support found here

Yes great! I got my full screen back....only now I don't have any sound (netflix or hulu)
