User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0b3) Gecko/20100805 Firefox/4.0b3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0b3) Gecko/20100805 Firefox/4.0b3

The flash video is loaded and switched to full-screen mode using its own controls, then you restore it back to windowed mode. The video stops playing and the page reloads/refreshes itself.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Youtube.com
2. Wait for the video to load and start playing.
3. Switch to full-screen view.
4. Switch back to windowed mode.
Actual Results:  
The flash video stops playing and the page refreshes/reloads itself. The video then restarts playback where it stopped at fullscreen.

Expected Results:  
During playback of Flash video, switching from full-screen to windowed mode should be seamless and should not cause the page to refresh/reload.

Unable to reproduce. Videos plays seamlessly without any issues when switching from full screen mode to windowed mode.
