Youtube full screen mode crash FF on Linux

Post by Terran »

Few days ago youtube full screen mode started to crash my Firefox browser, the program close automatically, if i restarted it say restore session or star new.
I have install Linux mint 8 FF 3.5, I also try with Linux Mint 9 FF 3.6 on live CD , but the problem still there.
Sometimes happens sometimes not but if I switch several times between full screen mode and normal mode, it will crash, even though the video is totally charge I meant it is not problem of streaming.
I don't remember this problem before but I am new, about 1 mount with Mint. there is no problem using Windows XP

If you're running Compiz, try opening Compiz Config Settings Manager -> Workarounds and enable Legacy Fullscreen Support.

Antivirus or defragging?
