Bug Description



Binary package hint: firefox-3.5

While watching a flash video in firefox on one monitor, I click click "Full-Screen"
I click over to another window on a different monitor, and it un-full-screens

Can you please leave the video full-screen unless I click that screen?

This is working in Chome and Chromium in 14.04 but not in Firefox.

The proprietary Flash plugin is no longer being updated by upstream. Can this bug report be closed as wontfix?

I guess flash has been replaced with html5 so this but is kind of irrelevant by now.
