no, i don't think its the version, you're probably right that its likely something else i have installed or configured. its just weird its the same on both my laptop and even directly from the HTPC. Could there possibly some problem where love film mce and the addon are installed on the same PC? I can't think of anything else. the only other PC i have access to (work) bans the lovefilm website.
honestly though martin, if its just me don't worry. its mainly my sense of frustration that wants to fix this, if i really start using the streaming service i'll just use chrome. cheers
