Netflix login problem, all browsers, windows 8

Since upgrading to Windows 8, I can't log into NetFlix account in Firefox, IE, Chrome, or Opera. Get totally red browser window. Add-on bar (in FF, for example) shows connection activity and then "Done." Checked firewall, HOSTS file, and AV for blocked sites, but this one apparently not blocked. Everything works in Windows 7. This has nothing to do with NetFlix player app. I don't do streaming.

I'd be very grateful for any help.

Thanks,
Steve

try safemode with network. if it works then you have some program installed that is blocking it.

Thanks, my truths.

Netflix page loads with a blank red screen with no place for login info. There's nothing blocking Netflix, just something corrupting login screen. This happens in Windows 8 with Firefox, Chrome, IE, and Opera. No problem with Linux or Windows 7.

did you try what I suggested? Because if it is not opening in all of those browsers something you have installed is blocking. That is why if you had not tried what I suggested you really need to. netflix does work with win8 and does work with each of those browsers in win8. You are getting the same page I am getting when accessing netflix so the page itself is not corrupted.

In the meantime, try the direct link to login

oops need to clarify something. When I said you are getting the same page I am, I mean you are accessing the same coding.

Tried safemode and direct link with same results. In all cases, Netflix loads partially, at least, with browser screen the same solid Netflix red but without places to enter login info. In Firefox, the add-on bar says "Done." No error messages. How could this be blocking?

Many thanks,
Steve

W3C Markup Validation Service provides the following for blank Netflix webpage:
4 errors and 8 warnings
Errors found while checking this document as HTML5!
Address given as https://signup.netflix.com/entrytrap . So Netflix is loading into an entry trap.
This happens in Windows 8 but not in Windows 7 or Linux.

Just about every page you sent through the validation service will find errors. You got something else going on because I do not have the problem on windows 8.

Are you using any type of proxy or vpn? If so, disable those and try it without.

There is a win8 app for netflix from microsoft. maybe give it a try.

If you have a twitter account you can also go to the following and ask

The HTML validation errors are not relevant. The point is that Netflix opens for me in an entry trap.
The Netfix app is no help, because I don't have a streaming account. I'm just trying to get into my DVD account.
Thanks,

Just had a long phone conversation with a very nice NetFlix support person, who had no solution to this apparently very rare problem. Think I'll close this thread and start a new one about entry traps.

Many thanks to all.
