Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-screensaver

this probably is a know issue but there was no bug filed for this problem ,so...

1] using ubuntu 9.04, upto date as of today...
2] gnome-screensaver 2.24.0-0ubuntu6

3]the gnome screen saver doesnt recognize when firefox videos are playing , so usually the video ends up being disrupted by the screen saver.
 this problem is worse when the videos are played in full-screen, the screen saver causes the video to quit the full-screen mode and sometimes the flash video disappears for a sec or so...

 have tried this with both metacity and compiz but this happens for both window managers.

4] the ideal setup would be when the gnome screensaver recognizes when embedded/fullscreen videos are playing in firefox , as it recognizes other video players, and to not activate during video play mode.
