Up until the last month I had no problems with playback through Firefox on Windows 10. However, a recent update has rendered fullscreen unusable. When you hit the fullscreen button the video in front of you stops playing and a Flash Player icon appears. If you click on it the icon then the original window starts working again and the icon dissapears. Up to now I have made do by using the pop out playback window function which allows me to get near full screen but still has the bars at the top and bottom.

I have tried changing page permissions in Firefox to allow fullscreen playback on this site with no effect and I have cleared all cookies as well as browsing history. Right now I don't know what else I should do to fix this. It seems to be either a problem with Firefox of Flash player but I can't lock it down to either one.

You can use Chrome as a work around. Still occurs on the most recent flash and firefox. This doesn't happen on my laptop, so I wonder if it could have something to do with the video drivers? I have an Nvidia Geforce GTX 650. My laptop I think has an AMD chipset. This also occurs on for me, but not youtube.
