Solved full screen mode causes streaming video to freeze

Specs: Windows Vista, AMD Athlon(TM) Neo X2 Dual-Core Processor for Ultrathin Notebooks L335 (1.6 GHz

I have a HP Pavilion Entertainment laptop that runs Vista. Has been problem free since purchase abt 4 years ago. About 7 months ago, while streaming video from various sites, when I change it to full screen mode, it will play ok for about 5 seconds, then freeze. The audio will continue about 3 more seconds then stop. If, however, I move the cursor in the screen, it will restart the streaming and sort of catch up to where it should've been, given it had not stopped. So odd and frustrating.

I suspect it has something to do with adobe flash, but have tried to follow various fixes I have found online, and so far nothing helps. Have updated drivers, cleaned out caches and cookies. Removed and reinstalled Firefox and all adobe products. Any help out there?

I don't use IE and do not want to start now, but thanks for the suggestion. I just deleted the newest version of Adobe Flash and reinstalled the older but perhaps more stable (for FF) version 10. the freezing has stopped.

I wasn't asking you to switch to using IE. It's just that if you had IE on board it would
prove or disprove whether it was a browser issue.

Glad to hear the freezing has stopped, maybe Adobe Flash was corrupted. I have Flash version 11 running fine on Vista, Win7 and XP. It might have been clashing with some other software you have installed I suppose.
