The problem occurs when a flash object (e.g. embed Youtube video) is on the right-hand sided window of the Google Wave layout. While I switch Firefox to or from full screen, the flash object will disappear for instance and then re-appear. However, the flash object will reload. For example, if a embed Youtube video is playing, and I switch to full screen, the video will disappear for a second then show up again; however, the video looks like "new" - the video starts from the beginning, just like the way the Youtube looks like when the page first loaded. Same problem occurs when I point the cursor to the top edge of my screen in full screen mode to let the toolbar shows up.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Google Wave
2.Open a wave with flash objects (e.g. embed Youtube)
3.Start using the flash objects (e.g. play an embed Youtube movie)
4.Change Firefox into full screen mode.
Actual Results:  
The flash object reloads.

Expected Results:  
The flash object should not reload. For example, if a flash video is playing, it should be playing continuously without jumping back to its starting point.

I didn't try it in previous stable versions of Firefox.

Able to reproduce in the latest build and also in firefox 3.6.8 build.

When trying to open the  browser in full screen mode while playing the embed youtube video, the following error message is seen in the Error console : 

Error: Permission denied for <https://82nh1p3800pq6b8vakok6tdfmodlse4f-a-wave-opensocial.googleusercontent.com> to call method Location.toString on <https://wave.google.com>

flash object reloads on scroll event, when changing css position, from fixed to static of parent element. As a result played videos will stop. Currently using a customized scroll follow script with jquery.

Steps to Reproduce:

3.Move back up to top, or until the object is returned to static position
4.Alternatively, start Video and repeat steps 2-3

Expected Results: Flash object should not reload.
