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.

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 @ Hulu.com:
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 :)
