full screen adobe flash crash | Firefox Support Forum | Firefox Help

I'm running Fedora 14 and just started having this problem with Flash Videos on YouTube and all other Video Sites Crashing when I changed the Video to Full Screen Mode. This just started after I updated the Flash Player Plug-in to "Adobe Flash Plugin Fully Supported: Mozilla SeaMonkey 1.0+, Firefox 1.5+, Mozilla 1.7.13+" What I ended up doing was just opening up a YouTube Video and Right Clicking in the Video Window.

I believe it stays on the last thing you were looking at, the last time you were in there. I figured out what was going on from the info below... I tried what sounded like a real fix first. But it didn't make any change for me. But, Ya never know till Ya Try, what will work best... Here's the Top Two Methods (in my opinion) that I found...  


How To Fix Full-Screen Flash Videos in Linux & Firefox (or Swiftfox)

By default, Firefox (or Swiftfox) crashes when trying to view a full-screen video on say... YouTube. At least for me it used to crash until I found a fix and from what I've understand it's got something to do with the graphic card drivers and it's affecting both nVidia and ATI. If that is the case for you also, you may want to read on.

To fix the full-screen flash videos bug, you need to preload a library called when you start Firefox or Swiftfox. Here is how to do it:


I looked around in my Repos in Fedora 14 and didn't find installed, nor available to install. So, I Nixed this Method...

full screen adobe flash crash

Full screen mode has been always working fine. I have all the latest browser and plugin versions. Have not made any recent changes either. Today I cannot view any Hulu 0r Youtube videos in full screen. I get a grey screen with 'send report' for the crash.

      Fixed @

      1. randomly select a video

      2. select 'pop-out' on the right side selections

      3. on the popped out screen right click and uncheck 'hardware acceleration'

      now all videos from all sources will play in 'full screen mode' Don't know if this was globally added recently by Adobe Flash since I never had this issue come up before. Hope this works for all that are experiencing this same issue :)
