Confirm for flash website that uses 100% of the window.
I don't mean fullscreen flash like youtube fullscreen mode.
Only flash sites that resize and reposition content based on user screen size.
(100% x 100%)

When you trigger context-menu (right-click), vertical and horizontal scrollbars are shown, which is annoying since these websites often use their own scrollbars/navigation.

If you click on the address bar scrollbars disappear until you click back on the flash site.

Workaround for this bug is to add `overflow:hidden;` to body :
body {

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce: 100% x 100% flash site
2.right click
Actual Results:  
Vertical and horizontal scrollbars are shown.

Expected Results:  
Nothing, no scrollbars

Might be only for flash with swfobject integration.
Confirmed for Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100122 Namoroka/3.6.1pre and also reproducible with latest trunk.

Sounds related to / is a duplicate of Bug 541406.

The vertical scrollbar is shown for :
width:`whatever defined px width` X height: 100%

The horizontal scrollbar is shown for :
width 100% X height: `whatever defined px width`
Activating the flash (clicking on it) makes it happen (not related to context_menu)
Confirmed in firefox 3.6, either with win7 or winXP
Confirmed on Mac OS 10.6.2 for Firefox 3.6

Just clicking on the flash makes this annoying thing to happen, adding overflow:hidden does not solve this problem.

What solves the problem is adding "outline:none;" to the id of the container where the flash is embedded.

This looks like it WFM using latest trunk, is probably dupe to bug 541406?
Resolving old bugs which are likely not relevant any more, since NPAPI plugins are deprecated.
