I know this is old, but I fixed this problem by

right clicking -> Silverlight -> Permissions
Then I removed the Netflix stay fullscreen permission. Netflix asked me the next time i made it full screen if i wanted it to stay full screen I hit remember my answer and clicked yes.

Anyways that is the only way I was able to fix it was by removing it and re-adding it

I have the problem of Silverlight not staying on full screen at the end of the movie and through the credits. I went and looked at the permissions tab and the box is empty. I am not shure what to do to make Silverlight stay full screen until the credits end.

If this doesn't work, remove the permission, then go back to Netflix and restore the full screen mode. It'll bring up the original pop up to allow full screen while off focus.

I am having almost the same problem. Just after the end of the movie and the ending credits start. Silverlight jumps out of full screen mode. I have been reading the posts and I understand there is a cmd to keep Silverlight in full screen mode. I just don't know the cmd to enter or were to enter it into. I could use some help on this please.

Perfect fix. Mine was already Allowed but I hit Allow again and then was prompted if I wanted to keep Silverlight in fullscreen and it worked out.Thank you.
