I have not used gnash etc yet, they are not really feature complete enough for me to not care about fixing this issue with proprietary flash.
Interestingly, the issue seems to dissapere when i "pop out" the youtube flash video into it's own window, I can then resize the window to whatever I want (bigger than full screen) and it playes pretty much OK (720p or lower). The issue only happens when it's embedded in the main firefox window.. I will try to make a video to show the issue and upload it.
EDIT: This is fixed now . The issue was actually compiz and enabling "workarounds > legacy fullscreen support" in compizconfig-settings-manager fixed it perfectly!
Thanks for your help though olof_!

I'm following the cchtml tutorial to get my Radeon 6850 working, and I'm stuck on generating the new xorg.conf file. When I enter the command:
sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak
I get this:
mv: cannot stat `/etc/X11/xorg.conf': No such file or directory
Any thoughts? Do I need to manually create a config in the X11 folder? There is a xorg.conf.failsafe I'm guessing this was the backup I created? I dunno, I'm stumped
I'd like to add that executing that script on startup isn't really necessary. Just do it everytime the module gets updated (driver updates and kernel updates?). Of course it doesn't hurt at boot either, but it takes a few seconds at least on my system.

@ Olof_ Oooook got it. I read the disclaimer as "10.14 and later" - I've been working on this so long I'm beginning to see imaginary numbers.
I'd like to say I've made progress but it seems I've worked myself into more trouble. At first, I rebooted after installing all the packages/debs whatnot and went to test the installation with the "fglrxinfo" command. It came back as "command not found"
I did some poking around and found fglrx and the rest of the downloaded package and they are installed according to software manager.... then comes my newest issue. I was poking around some more - I can't remember exactly what I was doing - but I think I went into >Additional Drivers where I found ATI/AMD: FGLRX or something to that effect and it was not active. Since activating the driver and rebooting I am unable to boot back into my GUI.
First - I have to get back into my GUI - how?
Second - assuming I don't have to restart the entire Catalyst installation process what is my next step considering fglrxinfo returns no results?
Thanks for the continued help folks
After installing the video card itself I couldn't start X anymore, so I chose recovery mode at boot and chose the root shell. There I simply started X by starting kdm (I'm on Kubuntu, probably simply gdm for ubuntu) adn I was greeted by a dialog saying that my graphic card isn't working as expected (surprise, surprise). I then chose the standard settings that the dialog was offering me, rebooted, and I was able to start X with the vesa drivers. There I first installed fglrx via the additional drivers dialog. Of course those were the old catalyst drivers, so I manually downloaded the newest and installed those. That got everything working except for the watermark, but I removed that with the script like I said.
I don't know if this helps you at all, but I would recommend you to use the recovery mode boot option when you can't start X anymore anyway.
