Tense time exiting Netflix

I want to relate a weird situation from this weekend. We were in the new Tesla Y and watching Netflix while waiting in line for a car ferry. When it came to be our turn to move forward onto the ferry, I could not get the car into drive and could not get the screen to exit Netflix. First-world problem, right? However, I then had hundreds of cars behind me impatiently trying to get on the ferry and I'm sitting there trying to get my car to respond. No actions on the screen worked (Netflix was still playing). Foot on the brake - nada. Attempt to put the car into drive - nothing. Opened and closed the door hoping it would instigate some action - nothing. I finally pulled out my phone and locked and then unlocked the car. When I touched the brake after that, the car started behaving.

I have since tried this again in a less pressured situation, and the car works exactly as you would expect. When watching Netflix, simply touch the brake and the car goes into "drive mode" like you'd expect. Tried it 4 or 5 times and it worked predictably.

Hmm... I think I had this exact problem over the weekend, but I was in a shopping center and was not in anyone’s way. I don’t remember what I did to get the screen to terminate Netflix, I possibly did step on the brake.

I recall having a similar problem where Netflix or YouTube would take ~30s to exit. I think it was fixed on 4.11 for me.

I have 4.12 now and Netflix is still quick to exit. YouTube still might take a few seconds (<5) occasionally.

I've seen this as well with all of the theater apps but mostly with Hulu (since I'm usually getting a Rick and Morty or Futurama fix). I'm on 4.12 also.
