Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

I was playing http://ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/debian-meetings/2010/debconf10/high/1124_1124_Bits_from_the_DPL.ogv with firefox, expecting that the screen mantained working all the time, but unfortunatly the screen switched off, according to gnome preferences.

Thank you for reporting this to Ubuntu. Was this a full screen video or just a video playing?
