Thread: Exiting Adobe Flash's fullscreen screws up display. Only restart fixes it.

  1. #1

    Default Exiting Adobe Flash's fullscreen screws up display. Only restart fixes it.

    Recently, since some update to the latest Flash, I've been getting a weird issue. If I'm watching a flash video in fullscreen (via firefox) and hit "esc" to leave full screen, about 20-40% of the time it will screw up the monitor's display of everything. The entire screen gets weird white and colored pixels randomply all over the screen (see the attached picture).

    Restarting is the only thing that fixes this. I tried logging out and back in but the issue remains.

    I have two questions:

    1. How do I fix this without a restart?
    2. What could be causing this?

    Hi Friend,

    I know this seems a stupid question.
    But you know the player controls to exit full screen,... if you use that does this happen?

    Don't know what the cause might be, but have you tried logging out of your session rather than rebooting?

    OK, no prob. Sorry to be a bit touchy there.

    It only starting happening in the last week or so (although I don't watch a ton of videos full screen, so it's a small sample size) but I believe I did press the button one of the times to undo full screen and it still happened, but not 100% certain. I'll have to try that again (at the end of the day as it's not very good for efficiency during the day ) to see what happens. The problem is that it's not 100% occurrence even with "esc." It only happens sometimes.

    I read it twice, and somehow I missed that. Sorry!
