Check out this link for further instructions. It depends on what version of Windows you are running, and Vista may require extra steps. Also, it installs differently for Firefox than it does for Internet Explorer.

Also, there is a different version for Mac users as well...

    Firefox stores its downloaded files in its own download cache, I believe. It may be different on Linux, but you should be able to find the download location somewhere under the tools or options. So, you may have downloaded it several times, but it's simply being stored in Firefox's download folder.

You can update silverlight for free with Microsoft. Your computer needs the program to stream the programs.
It has nothing to do with Netflix, although the program is needed on your computer, to let Netflix (or any other movie program) work correct.

My computer advises not to install silverlight

Silverlight is a plugin from Microsoft similar to Flash and Java. Installing Silverlight is not a risk for your computer, as long as you make sure to download it from a safe and secure source. is the official Microsoft site for it, and has the download link for which you can install. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, it will usually ask to verify that you want to install the software as part of its security, but just click to allow the software to install and you should be good to go.
