Unable to watch SeeSaw.com content full-screen

Bug Description

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

I attempted to watch a Dr Who episode on SeeSaw.com - display was screwed up when I selected full screen, to the extent that the "Press Esc to exit full-screen" message scrolled left to right on a black screen; I was able to hear sound though. I was then unable to back out by hitting Escape (normal return-to-windowed-display keypress).

Seesaw's own help describes this as a known issue; it recommends disabling hardware acceleration by right-clicking on the player, selecting "Settings" then deselcting "use hardware acceleration". This is greyed out on 10.04.1 running on an R61i (my display controller is, I believe, an Intel X3100). Consequently, this course of action is not available to me, and I am restricted to watching within a window.

In order to recover, I had to hit CTRL-ALT-F1, switch to a text console, log in and reboot (sudo shutdown-r now)... then watch the content in a window.

I have not tested with iPlayer - but this could also have an impact.

Please liaise with Adobe and fix.
