When I play videos with the flash player on firefox and switch to fullscreen, I get a white screen. The audio can still be heard. Hitting ESC switches back to normal view.

Please note:

  • I have tried disabling all of my addons, didn't help.
  • I tried uninstalling flash and reinstalling, didn't help.
  • Flash player fullscreen mode works OK on IE, but not on Firefox.
  • Firefox version 3.6.10
  • I am running the later version of flash player (10.1.85)
  • Firefox non-flash fullscreen mode (F11) works fine
