    Netflix icon disappeared.

    Whether I locate Netflix from the dock, or if I type its name in overlay mode, or whatever, the icon is gone. Netflix launches just fine, but it's just irritating because it's not supposed to be like that.
    I have uninstalled and re-installed Netflix to no avail. The icon will not come back.
    At this point, I'm wondering if the easiest fix would be to just make a new icon in GIMP, but I don't even know what directory the icon is supposed to be in in the first place. Does anybody know how to get it back or just replace it?
    I'm including pictures of my monitor so you can see what I'm looking at.


    Oh, Linux... if only I had known.

    Bump. Could someone possibly tell me where I might find an answer? Netflix Desktop for Linux doesn't have its own forum, so I'm really not sure who to talk to.

    Extremely old bump. Extremely old problem. No change. Still wanting a fix for this.

    I am not sure if the netflix Desktop is still being maintained. The developers have moved on to a better technology called pipelight, which enables silverlight and netflix to work in native linux browsers instead of through a Windows version of Firefox.

    Oh, wow. I can't believe I didn't know this. Thank you very much for the information! I'll get this installed and try it out.
