    Flash videos going blank in full screen

    Hey, I've recently begun to have the problem of whenever a flash video in Firefox 4.0 goes in full screen mode, the screen goes black and my laptop is unresponsive. However, the video's sound will keep playing. Is there any solution to this? Thanks

    Does your mouse still work? If yes, you can try to minimize the screen and maximize it again. Or you can try hitting F11. I have had this happened to me a couple of times. If nothing works then you will need to reinstall Flash.

    I can't do any of the above. I've also reinstalled Flash twice and that didn't solve the problem. I also tried doing full screen flash in Chrome and it was the same black screen. Thanks though.
